Annual Gregory Lecture

The Gregory Lecture was inaugurated in 1993 and named in honour of Professor Ken Gregory, a world-leading geomorphologist and geographer and former Head of Department, Dean of Science and Deputy Vice Chancellor and now a visiting professor at the University. He was appointed CBE in 2007 for services to geography and higher education. The aim of the Gregory Lecture series was, and continues to be, to provide a forum for academic discourse between the world’s leading geographers.
