Research Seminars Academic Year 2018/19

King’s College London Human Geography Seminar Series



Bringing together the interests and expertise of the Contested Development, Risk and Society 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, our research seminars provide an opportunity for staff and students in the domain to come together with others from the wider research community for lively discussion and debate.

All seminars will be held on Wednesdays from 16.30-18.00 at King’s College London. Please see below for specific rooms for each seminar. A drinks reception will follow all seminars.
