Human Geography Seminar Series for Autumn 2016

The King’s College London Department of Geography is pleased to announce its Human Geography Seminar Series: New Frontiers in Research and Policy for Autumn 2016.

The Series brings together the interests and expertise of the Contested Development, Risk and Society, Spatial Politics, and Urban Futures Research Domains and the King’s Climate and King’s Water Activity Hubs to explore new frontiers in research and policy on human-environment interactions. A number of the seminars are thus water-themed, and all should be of interest to those concerned with sustainability, environmental policy, and cultural spaces.

Seminars will be held on Wednesdays from 4:30-6pm in the Pyramid Room (K4U.04) of the Strand Building, King’s College London. A drinks reception will follow. All events are free and open to the public. Registration is not required. We hope to see you there!
