The Antarctic: A Very Short Introduction
Monday 24 March 2014
Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society Professor Klaus Dodds highlights the main issues facing the Antarctic today. He explains how globalisation means the continent is increasingly involved in a wider circuit of ideas, goods, people, trade and governance, all of which have an impact on its future. Dodds is professor of geopolitics at Royal Holloway, University of London, and a visiting fellow at St Cross College, University of Oxford.
