This spring's Mark Blacksell Public Lecture in Geography will be given by Daniel Raven-Ellison.

In this thought-provoking and challenging public lecture, Daniel will share his guide to Guerrilla Geography. Giving examples of radical, alternative and creative public geographies, Daniel will explain what guerrilla geography is, why it's important and how it's at the heart of the movement he started to make London the world's first National Park City. He'll also cover waterboarding championships, using mind-reading devices to explore cities and his recent 100 metre micro-expedition that will change the way you think about the UK forever.

This free lecture is open to all and no booking is required.

The Mark Blacksell Lecture, University of Plymouth, in association with the Royal Geographical Society (RGS)

The purpose of this series of lectures is to bring scholars working at the forefront of geography to the University of Plymouth to present their research to a public audience. The lecture series is named after the late Professor Mark Blacksell, a human geographer with unusually widespread interests and expertise. He was appointed Professor of Geography at the University in 1994, and served as both Head of the Geography Department and Dean of the Faculty of Science before he retired in 2003.
