2018 has been another busy year in the School of Geography, and to round up the year and give you an idea of what we do, we have put together a collection of blogs relating to research from the School, which we hope you will enjoy.

We would also like to wish you a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year from all the staff in the School of Geography.

See links to Pietro Piana latest blog on the project website; it describes Pietro’s last field survey in the Alps around Turin, which is one of our case studies https://topographicalart.wordpress.com/2018/12/06/in-the-valleys-of-turin-historical-and-current-landscapes-of-the-cottian-alps/  
The website shows to the public the results of our three year project ‘British amateur topographical art and landscape in Northwestern Italy, 1835-1915’. This is a Leverhulme funded project directed by Professor Charles Watkins and co-directed by Dr Ross Balzaretti (History.) Pietro is the project research fellow.

Here is a piece Thom Davies wrote for the Antipode Foundation blog, based on research he is doing with refugees trapped in the Balkans: https://antipodefoundation.org/2018/10/30/the-violent-reality-of-the-eu-border-police-brutality-in-the-balkans/

It was also published in OpenDemocracy here.
