Urban Health & Environments

Research on urban health and environments at EUC involves interdisciplinary attention to the ways in which social processes intersect with health, well-being and sexuality for urban communities. We also examine how urbanization impacts the environment and creates new ecologies of city life. In recent years, several research projects have sought to understand the urban contexts for pandemics.
