The Royal Holloway Centre for the GeoHumanities is a new initiative
from the Social, Cultural and Historical Geography research group at
Royal Holloway, dedicated to promoting links between geographers, arts
and humanities scholars, and practitioners from the arts, cultural and
heritage sectors. Its key areas of interest include:

• The Environmental GeoHumanities, encompassing arts and humanities
scholarship on environment, nature and environmental change.

• The Creative GeoHumanities, encompassing practice-based arts
research engaging themes of place, space, landscape and environment.

• The Spatial GeoHumanities, encompassing arts and humanities research
on our imaginative geographies, spatial connections and mobilities,
past and present.

• The Digital GeoHumanities, encompassing the use of Geographic
Information Systems (GIS), geo-coded data and digital mapping within
arts and humanities scholarship.

• The Public GeoHumanities, encompassing in particular the place-based
and spatial understandings of the cultural, creative and heritage

The Denis Cosgrove Lecture in the GeoHumanities will be a regular part
of the Centre's programming. Denis was a Professor at Royal Holloway
from 1994 to 2000, before moving to UCLA, and his intellectual vision
played a central role in developing the links between Geography and
arts and humanities scholars and practitioners internationally. 2016
also marks the 20th anniversary of the MA in Cultural Geography that
Denis helped to establish at Royal Holloway. We are honoured that his
family have agreed that we can name this lecture series in his memory.

We very much hope that you can join us for the lecture and wider
celebration on June 16th.
