Geography as a separate discipline was established at Uppsala University in the year 1901. In the 1940's the subject was divided into two separate branches of physical and human geography. Human geography, in Swedish referred to as kulturgeografi or samhällsgeografi (Geography of Society), studies the relations and presence of phenomena that can be associated with human activities.
