Geoscience in Context is a seminar series and discussion group in the Department of Earth Sciences that intends to broaden departmental understanding of geoscience’s place in society, the history of the subject, its modern practice and its role in shaping the future. The series aims to provide human context for the scientific research of the department, and to provide a safe, open and supportive forum for discussion of these topics.

For more details, and the code of conduct please see:

Talks will be via zoom, with the talk part live streamed to facebook (via the Geoscience in Context group). A recording of the talks (though not the discussion will be available after the event).
