About this Event

Jacob Obodai is undertaking his geography PhD research at the Open University and his talk will focus on the impact of artisanal and small-scale mining activities on food security in Ghana. The key resources on which artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) and smallholder farming (SHF) activities hinge on are land and labour which are sometimes in fierce competition.

Dr Ben Newman recently joined the Open University as lecturer in geography and will be talking about his research. The title of Ben’s inaugural OpenSpace talk will be Making and mediating knowledge at the Royal Geographical Society. Taking the development of British geography in the nineteenth century as its focus, Ben will illustrate the role of the humble periodical in shaping the discipline in this period.
