Research seminars

Throughout the course of the year we run a series of research seminars in both human and physical geography across Penryn and Streatham campuses. These seminars cover a wide range of topics and attract guest speakers from across the UK as well speakers from the discipline.

These seminars provide students and academics from across the University with a platform to meet and discuss the latest topics in geography.

Seminars for 2015/16

Please find listed below the forthcoming seminars for 2015/16. You can find  a list of all research seminars across the College of Life and Environmental Scienes on the college website events page.
