Our popular Monday night lecture series kicks off again next week with a diverse range of topics, mixing far-flung travels with scientific rigour, and exploring some of the most topical issues facing society today.
Throughout the autumn, our lectures dive into the heart of the Amazon, reach the dizzy heights of Afghanistan’s mountains, and plunge into the depths of the Indian Ocean. We will also relive the discovery of Antarctica on its bicentenary, explore why digital geographies matter and uncover the impact of microplastics on river systems in the UK.
Lectures are exclusive to Fellows and members of the Society and attending them is free with your membership. Take a look at the full programme of Monday night lectures for this term.
Five post-lecture suppers are also taking place, and these are excellent occasions to meet other members and discuss the evening’s lecture. The first supper of the term is on 30 September, while the last is a special Christmas supper on 9 December. Each supper costs £30 for two courses, wine, coffee and chocolates, and places must be booked in advance.
If you are unable to make it to the lectures in person, don’t forget that as a Fellow or member you can watch previous Monday night lectures online. You can catch up on nearly five years of fascinating lectures, and other talks too.
