Geography 50
  • Sherwell Centre, University of Plymouth

Save event

2019 is the 50th anniversary of geography as a degree subject at the University of Plymouth, and we’re celebrating the occasion on Friday 22 November. 

In paying tribute to the contributions of the 154 staff who’ve worked with us, and the achievements of the 6,394 graduates who’ve studied with us, we’ve organised a public lecture and the launch of a specially-commissioned book that tells the story of geography at Plymouth. 

Dan Charman, formerly Professor of Physical Geography at the University of Plymouth and now Pro-Vice Chancellor at the University of Exeter, will present a lecture showcasing the critical relevance of geographers’ work on a pressing global issue: ‘Whither the wetlands? The world’s wet places and future climate change’.

We will also present a short history of geography at the University of Plymouth, to accompany the launch of Professor Mark Brayshay’s book on the subject.


  • Arrival: 16:30
  • Lectures: 17:15-19:15
  • Wine reception: 19:15-20:15

You are cordially invited to join us as we celebrate the 50th birthday of geography at the University of Plymouth.
