Two Geography Inaugurals this term

On the length of the current interglacials and the future of cities

Two Geography Inaugurals this term

This term, there are to be two inaugural lectures by UCL geographers:

 


On 15 November 2011: Professor Chronis Tzedakis

The natural length of the current interglacial

 

 

 

Although no glacial inception is projected to occur at current anthropogenically-driven CO2 concentrations of 390 ppmv, considerable uncertainty remains over the natural length of the present interglacial in the absence of human interference.

On 6 December 2011: Professor Jennifer Robinson

Cities in a World of Cities: Traces of elsewhere in the making of city futures

 

Policy making for cities is profoundly internationalised and, in the wake of vast changes in where urbanisation is taking place across the globe, scholars must now theorise the contemporary urban condition with reference to  a world of diverse cities.

Both lectures will take place in the UCL Wilkins Building, Gustav Tuck Lecture Theatre at 6.30 pm.
