Come along and find out about coastlines, volcanoes and the polar regions, see demonstrations with our state-of-the-art equipment, and meet our researchers. A new paper from Professor Phil Gibbard , " Pleistocene glaciation of Fenland, England, and its implications for evolution of the region ", demonstrates for the first time that the form and scale of modern Fenland, East Anglia, is due to glaciation during the late Middle Pleistocene period, around , years ago. This workshop, Architecture, geo-politics and scientific knowledge , to be held on Wednesday 24th January at King's College, Cambridge, investigates variegated relationships between architecture, broadly conceived, and the sciences of behavior and life, such as psychology, biology and ecology.
Underlining the historical, geographical and geo-political aspects to these relationships, the workshop is interested in the genealogy, translation and operationalization of such fundamental concepts as need, organization, or environment, among others. How can we relate such epistemological histories and geographies of architecture to the widely divergent forms of politics enacted by architects, urban designers and spatial practitioners?
A photo essay on the Pani, Pahar research project , "Sacred, life affirming and fast disappearing: waters of the Himalayas" is now available from the Guardian. The project explores the escalating water crisis in the Himalayas. The three undergraduates, Esha Geography , Stephen Geography and Jay Management, formerly Geography , provided a key contribution to the paper.
The research, " A methodological guide to using and reporting on interviews in conservation science ", is published this week in Methods in Ecology and Evolution. Caius and the Department of Geography are very proud of the students, Dr Rose added. The students are looking forward to citing themselves in their dissertations when talking about how to conduct interviews and to all their peers citing them too! Professor Ananya Roy will detail key elements of racial banishment and indicate how urban transformation is articulated with necropolitics, including mass incarceration. Thinking from Los Angeles, she will argue that what is at stake is not only a more robust analysis of urban transformations but also attention to the various forms of urban politics that are challenging racial capitalism.
In , England suffered its deadliest natural disaster in over years. The cause - a North Sea Surge that swept its way down the east coast battering communities from Northumberland to Norfolk and beyond to the Thames Estuary. Over people were killed in England alone, both during the storm and in the chaotic aftermath that followed.
As one of the few sociological accounts of the impacts on flood victims, North Sea Surge has often been cited by research scientists, in government reports and the press. Through this update, Pollard reiterates the key themes for flood risk management and resilience to future flooding that have been the mainstay of reviews, reports and research since: the responsiveness of local and national government; the efficacy of flood warnings and national forecasting services; the tensions between private and public accountability; and the deep reserves of national good-heartedness that feature large in times of crisis.
In doing so, questions pertinent to the flood risk managers of today are posed:. The sand box has multiple uses. It is as useful as a tool to engage research stakeholders and policy makers in discussion around complex flood protection and climate adaptation issues as it is for engaging the general public during events such as the University's Science Festival, where it will next make an appearance on the 17 th of March See where some of our students went on fieldwork in the summer for their dissertations, in this year's ' Dissertation diaspora '.
This is a paid opportunity thanks to the generous support of the British Society for the History of Science. Applicants do not need specialist polar or climate knowledge - we are looking for somebody who is enthusiastic about communicating historical ideas about our changing climate. Full training and support will be given.
Further details are available on the British Society for the History of Science website. Many congratulations to the Rethinking Urban Nature team. The Department's Annual Report for , containing an overview of departmental activities across research, teaching, and technical and information services, is now available online. Dr Philip Howell spoke recently about the ethics of pet keeping on the BBC Radio 3 programme Free Thinking, drawing on his work on the cultural and historical geography of dogs in Victorian Britain. Dr Howell appears in a panel discussion along with the animal behaviourist John Bradshaw, the bioethicist Jessica Pierce, and the novelist Laura Purcell.
A new study by three Geography Department members Akanksha Marphatia , Alice Reid and Gabriel Amable of four South Asian countries reveals complex associations between early marriage and women's education, health and nutrition that go beyond the impacts of early childbearing.
These health implications -- which include higher risk of domestic violence and poor mental health -- may also affect the next generation of children. Furthermore, increased education has had some, but not enough, success in delaying girls' marriage. The study, published in open-access journal Frontiers in Public Health, provides evidence showing why early marriage should be considered a major public health issue. See the press release for more information. Discussions concerning the recognition and potential definition of a new division of geological time during which humans have become overarchingly influencing natural systems have led to the proposal to define a new time interval, the Anthropocene see earlier reports on these pages.
The controversy generated in the geological world has been offset by the remarkable interest the concept has initiated in non-geological, and especially in non-scientific fields.
The discussions, initiated during meetings of the Geological Society's Stratigraphy Commission, of which Professor Phil Gibbard , Dr Colin Summerhayes , and the other authors are members, has led to worldwide debate. These discussions have also spawned new lines of research, and encouraged inter-disciplinary discussions by members of the department, involving reseachers and students alike.
A new report presents the state of these fast evolving discussions developments that have animated the normally tranquil world of stratigraphy. It aims to develop innovative research across the three institutions and via three themes: Precision Medicine, Cities and Smart Systems. It is expected that successful applicants will apply for external funding to scale projects 18 months after this seed funding has been received.
Falling under the 'Cities' theme, the CCRU project will investigate the potential for ecological adaptation and ecosystem-based flood defence management in three contrasting urban socio-ecological systems: London and the Thames Estuary, San Francisco and San Francisco Bay, and the island margins of the City State of Singapore. It is well established that ecosystems such as tidal marshes, mangroves, dunes and oyster reefs have the natural capacity to reduce storm surges and waves, provide flood water storage and offer many additional benefits. However, coastal space usage is increasingly contested by other economic and social pressures, meaning that the design, implementation and effectiveness of ecosystem-based flood defence solutions depends on multiple and interacting social, environmental, economic and political factors.

The project will explore the drivers of coastal restoration and adaptation in each city and the policy contexts within which these are situated, investigating possible methods to identify locations suitable for adaptation interventions and criteria to measure and compare intervention 'success' and outcomes. University Lecturer, Dr Amy Donovan , has today written an article for The Telegraph, ' Under the volcano is a dangerous but rewarding place to live '.
Opportunities for ecological adaptation to flood hazards in major global cities: London, Singapore and San Francisco. This workshop, to be held on Wednesday 24 th January , investigates variegated relationships between architecture, broadly conceived, and the sciences of behavior and life, such as psychology, biology and ecology. We would be pleased to hear from anyone who might like to contribute a paper of 15 min.
We are especially keen to have representation across the spatial disciplines and beyond.

Accelerating sea level rise is thus a major societal concern and its impacts on shorelines must be accurately determined. This Australian-UK collaboration aims to improve Australia's capacity to predict changing shoreline position with sea level rise, better understand the role of vegetation in foreshore stabilisation and identify under what conditions the shoreline might suddenly shift landwards. Picture caption: Beach on Hinchinbrook Island, Northern Queensland, as seen from a drone, backed by an intertidal mangrove swamp fore and granite cliffs back.
Mangrove swamps can contribute to land elevation gain by trapping external sediments and creating organic matter, while cliffs provide little opportunity for shoreline retreat. Victoria Herrmann , a PhD student at the Scott Polar Research Institute and a Gates Cambridge Scholar, has won a prestigious US social entrepreneurship prize for a research project on US towns and cities at risk of partial submersion due to climate change.
Her winning Rising Tides project will create a new online matchmaking platform that connects pro bono experts with climate-affected communities. Whether taking on archaeological work in Alaskan villages or oral histories in Mississippi's historic black communities, the project will seek to safeguard heritage by connecting national expertise to some of the 13 million Americans who stand to be displaced due to rising waters in the coming years.
It will initially focus on bringing technical assistance directly to small and medium-sized towns that are geographically remote and socioeconomically vulnerable. By connecting communities with volunteer professionals looking to donate skills - from a one-hour consultation to a fully fledged cultural resources management plan - the project seeks to build social cohesion, preserve historic sites and empower local traditions to withstand climate threats. It is thought that by the end of this century, at least towns and cities across America will be partially underwater from sea-level rise and accelerating extreme storms.
The "Chaîne opératoire" approach in Middle Paleolithic Archaeology
The Rising Tides project will draw on Victoria's experience of working with community champions from Alaska to American Samoa through her America's Eroding Edges project, a partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The J. Kaplan Fund has provided catalytic funding for projects in their early stages of development in the form of grants. The Prize leverages this legacy of catalytic grant-making in the field of social innovation.
The three areas considered for the US prize are the environment, heritage conservation and social justice. The Fund says: "The J. Innovation Prize is awarded to projects or ideas that represent a game-changing answer to a clearly identified need; are innovative within the Fund's three funding areas; demonstrate the potential to develop an actionable pilot or prototype with Prize funding; and hold out the promise to benefit multiple individuals, communities, or sectors through a clearly articulated theory of change.
Individual tickets for this screening must be purchased in advance online. In Natura Urbana the changing vegetation of Berlin serves as a parallel history to war-time destruction, geo-political division, and the newest phase of urban transformation. Natura Urbana takes us on a unique journey through Berlin ranging from the botanical microcosm of cracked paving stones to elaborate attempts to map the entire city in terms of its distinctive ecological zones.
Just one generation ago, the Sora tribe in India lived in a world populated by the spirits of their dead, who spoke to them through shamans in trance. Every day, they negotiated their wellbeing in heated arguments or in quiet reflections on their feelings of love, anger, and guilt. Today, young Sora are rejecting the worldview of their ancestors and switching their allegiance to warring sects of fundamentalist Christianity or Hinduism. Communion with ancestors is banned, sacred sites demolished, and female shamans replaced by male priests, as debate with the dead gives way to prayer to gods.
For some, this shift means liberation from jungle spirits through literacy, employment, and democratic politics; others despair of being forgotten after death. How can a society abandon one understanding of reality so suddenly and see the world in a totally different way? Over forty years, anthropologist Piers Vitebsky has shared the lives of shamans, pastors, ancestors, gods, policemen, missionaries, and alphabet worshippers, seeking explanations from social theory, psychoanalysis, and theology.
Living without the Dead lays bare today's crisis of indigenous religions as historical reform brings new fulfillments—but also new torments and uncertainties.
