Kansas comes to UCL

Barney Warf is this year's Distinguished Visiting Professor in Geography at UCL

Kansas comes to UCL

March 2010 sees the arrival of Distinguished Visiting Professor Barney Warf for two weeks of collaboration and interaction with UCL Geography staff and graduate students.

Barney, who is currently Professor at the University of Kansas, is a human geographer with exceptionally wide-ranging interests in economic, political, and social geography.  His work has contributed to the shaping of human geography through his engagement with various strands of social theory, including Marxism, poststructuralism, phenomenology, spatial theory, and actor-network theory. Recent papers include studies of spatial biases in US voter power, the geography of telecommunications and the internet, and the geography of religious diversity.

Professor Warf will be giving a public lecture entitled, 'Nationalism, Cosmopolitanism, and Geographical Imaginations' on 25 March 2010 at 6pm in the UCL Pearson Lecture Theatre, Gower Street, London WC1 6BT.  Professor Jenny Robinson and Dr. Claire Dwyer will serve as discussants.
