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.

See details of previous talks in the series.
