The making of

Every summer, we invite all our students to submit their best field trip and field work shots and tell us their stories 'from the field' - a judging panel consisting of School academics and staff choose the 14 best ones to showcase the breadth of work our students across all courses are doing all over the world.

The calendar runs from December 2017 until January 2019.

Prof Heather Viles, Head of School "All encounters with 'the field' are precious to geographers, challenging our ideas and preconceptions and enabling us to put theories into practice. This collection of images and stories reflects the inspiration our students gain from their field courses and individual research visits. They document how geographers interact with people and environments in far flung places as well as closer to home. They illustrate what it means to be a geographer, recording the beauty of landscape and our engagement with it."
