Hi everyone


This is a reminder that the Cultural Geography Study Group symposium, Liminal Zones: Where sea and land meet, is scheduled for Friday 15 November at the University of Newcastle’s city campus.


The goal is to initiate discussion about potential future collaborations addressing the challenges of rapid environmental and social change in the context of a port city.


The program for the day includes a morning excursion along the foreshore, followed by presentations and discussion. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea are generously supported by funding from the Cultural Geography Study Group of the Institute of Australian Geographers. More information can be found at https://cultgeogau.wordpress.com/


For those who arrive on Thursday 14 November, we can catch up for dinner in Newcastle (venue to be advised)


Please let me know if you would like to attend so that I can ensure adequate catering on the day of the symposium


Looking forward to seeing you
