We are excited to announce this year’s line-up for Geographical journeys: microlectures. Join us for an evening packed full of tales to inspire, as eight speakers have just 10 minutes each to share their geographical journeys in an illustrated talk.
Tariq Ali and Alex Smith didn’t expect their photography, filmography and sketching to go beyond recording their journey along the Silk Roads. Helen Blamey seeks re-invigoration from the cliffs and seascape, after working as a junior doctor throughout the pandemic. Clive Millar shares the pitfalls and successes on his path to a career in safari tourism and wildlife conservation. Paul Breeze takes us to the Nefud Sand Sea where his team hunts for prehistoric archaeology and ancient water deposits, finding early evidence of humans journeying out of Africa
Viola King Forbes immerses herself whilst working on organic farms, and explains why we must get to know our farmers as part of the transition to sustainable agriculture. Matthew Doyle kayaks the Thames from source-to-sea, logging abandoned watercraft and associated pollution, while observing how the river continues to evolve to serve our communities. And Andrew Benfield embarks on a mountain odyssey in his quest to get to the bottom of a mysterious legend. Could there be a hairy biped roaming the Himalayas?
To hear more about these inspiring journeys join us for Geographical journeys: microlectures online or in-person at the Society at 7.00pm on 10 March, hosted by broadcaster and anthropologist, Mary-Ann Ochota.
