Colloquium presentations from 1979-2012

Geography colloquia comprises a series of seminars on diverse problems in human and physical geography and geographic techniques which are presented by invited speakers and UCSB Geography personnel. The colloquia series is officially known as Geography 201, “Seminar in Geography,” and attendance is required of all UCSB Geography graduate students every quarter when offered.

Colloquia provide a forum for visiting scholars to make presentations on anything related to Geography, allow our own and other graduate students and post docs to present their current and proposed research, and are open to the public as part of the Department of Geography’s commitment to education and public outreach. A list of Colloquium presentations are available below.
