Noel Castree is a Professor of Geography at the University of Wollongong, Australia, and the University of Manchester, England. He is the author and editor of several books on human-environment relations, including Social Nature (2001), Nature (2005), and Making Sense of Nature (2014). Reflecting his own education in both human and physical geography, he is currently investigating efforts in global change science to link biophysical science more effectively to knowledge about “human dimensions.” As part of this, he is exploring different conceptions of a new “social contract” between global change researchers and the many stakeholders who stand to be affected by their findings. His most recent publications on this and related topics have appeared in the journals Environmental Humanities, Geographical Research, and Nature Climate Change.
