Talk: The UK in the World/The World in the UK

3pm, Tuesday 2nd May, School of Geography and the Environment. Facebook Event

We are excited to announce our first event of Trinity, as we host Professor Jason Dittmer from UCL to give a geopolitics talk on ‘The UK in the World/The World in the UK’. The talk is a summary of Professor Dittmer’s upcoming book on British foreign policy formation, and will be take place in the Halford Mackinder Lecture Theatre (east end on the first floor of the School of Geography and the Environment). After the talk, students will have the opportunity to ask Professor Dittmer about the topic and his research.

Professor Dittmer is a renowned Geographer, having contributed to numerous works as a book review editor (Social and Cultural Geography), an author (Diplomatic Material: Affect, Assemblage, and Foreign Policy, Captain America and the Nationalist Superhero: Metaphors, Narratives, and Geopolitics, and Popular Culture, Geopolitics, and Identity), and editor/co-editor (Geopolitics: An Introductory Reader, Ashgate Research Companion to Media Geography, Comic Book Geographies, and Mapping the End Times: American Evangelical Geopolitics and Apocalyptic Visions). 

The event is free to GeogSoc members, and £3 for non-members. After the event, we will be convening in the E W Gilbert Room, and students who wish to join GeogSoc will have the opportunity to purchase membership.
