School Members Lecture - Governing the oceans: How (almost) everything you own moves from A to B

 Wednesday 27 September 2017

 Venue: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR
 Time: 5.15pm-6.30pm (doors open at 4.30pm)
 Cost: Free to School Members, places must be booked in advance

Speaker: Dr Kimberley Peters, University of Liverpool

An opportunity for our School Members to experience our popular lecture series.

Geography is a traditionally landlocked discipline. But what might we learn by looking outwards to the sea, rather than inwards to the land? Almost everything we own – from the shoes on our feet to the phones in our pockets – will have travelled in a ship across the oceans. The seas and oceans are central to our daily lives. Yet they are often invisible to us and we have little knowledge of how exactly things move from A to B. This lecture voyages out to sea to explore the hidden worlds of seas and oceans, asking how these global spaces are governed and the politics behind how everyday items seamlessly reach our shores.

Booking details
Booking for this event is now open. These events are no longer ticketed. Instead, a list of booked names will be monitored on the door on arrival. Places can be requested by emailing Claire at c.brown@rgs.org. We are asking schools to please be reasonable with the number of places they request for these free lectures. In order to prevent block booking by schools that subsequently do not use their full booking allocation thus preventing other schools from attending, we will be closely monitoring the use of booked places by each school. If we find that your school has booked far more places than it uses on the day, we may be forced to limit your school's booking allocation at future lectures. Young Geographer Members may also book a place to attend these lectures.

Bridging the gap

Bridging the gap events provide sixth form students the experience of what studying geography at university level is like. With four different seminars, led by our Geography Ambassadors, the day aims to replicate a ‘university geography’ experience, with each session directly based around a topic being studied at university.
 
The session groups are small (maximum of 10 students) to give students a ‘seminar’ type experience, providing them with the opportunity to be more involved in the session. Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 40 places for each day.

Venue: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), Kensington, London, SW7 2AR

Cost: Free

Booking and tickets

Bookings are currently closed, although more events will be announced for next academic year soon.

Please note: bookings must come from individual students. We will not accept block school bookings, although teachers can advertise the event to their pupils.
