Professor Adrian Bailey is presenting a keynote lecture at the Geographical Society of China’s annual conference in Xi'an on 29 and 30 August. Following the signing of an agreement with the Geographical Society of China earlier this year, he will also be acting as our representative to encourage more opportunities for sharing knowledge and expertise between both organisations.
The conference theme is the ‘Development of Chinese Geography in the New Era’ and up to 3,000 delegates from across China are expected to attend. Professor Adrian Bailey will give his keynote lecture during a plenary session after the opening ceremony on affective geographies for cherishing our planet.
He will also participate in a round-table discussion on ‘Progress and Prospects of Geography in the World’. Professor Bailey will be joining 10 other guests from international organisations in discussing the development of geographical societies and geographical prospects in the world and his presentation will focus on the Society’s journals.
Adrian Bailey is Professor of Geography and Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at Hong Kong Baptist University. He is also an editor of Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, one of the Society’s scholarly journals.
