Colloquia and Brown Bags

To foster an environment of scholarly exchange, the Geography Department organizes two types of research talks. The Department of Geography Colloquium Series is held roughly once a month on Friday afternoons in Callcott 201 and features prominent invited speakers, usually from outside the university. The Geography Brown Bag Series involves a more informal exchange of research ideas and serves as a forum for graduate students presentations and talks by visiting scholars. Please make sure to check this page for any updates to the presentation schedules.
