Research Seminars

Seminars take place throughout term time. Some are led by PhD students in the department and some play host to external speakers.

We have the following seminar series:   

GRI/G&E Research Seminar Series

The Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment hosts academic seminars for LSE and non-LSE researchers to exchange ideas about state-of-the-art research on climate change and environmental issues. Seminars are organised jointly by the Institute and the Department of Geography and Environment.

CEP/Geography Urban and Regional Economics Seminars

These seminars normally take place on Fridays between 1pm-2:30pm.

Economic Geography

Research Seminars in Economic Geography take place at LSE throughout term time. They are regularly led by PhD students in Economic Geography from LSE, and occasionally play host to external speakers. Seminars are open to all LSE staff and students.

Economic Geography and Spatial Economics

These seminars bring together scholars that work at the intersection between spatial and urban economics and the more institutionally-oriented fields of economic geography.

Human Geography 

These seminars are organised as part of a series of expert-led discussions. The seminars are open to all.

Social Life of Climate Change

These research seminars are interdisciplinary discussions around contemporary debates in the humanistic social sciences of climate change and the environment. Events take multiple formats, including standard seminar format as well as more engaged discussions of relevant readings and works in progress. The seminars are open to all.
