Eighty Years of Geography at Hull. A history of the Department of Geography University of Hull 1928-2008
This book chronicles the development of the Department of Geography at Hull University from its tentative beginnings in the late 1920s to its position as one of the University's major departments in 2008, the year of its eightieth anniversary. The book situates the Department amid wider changes in academic geography, British universities and British society more generally. It includes details of teaching and research activities, the staff, the student population and changes to the building in which the department is housed. As the first detailed, published history of an academic department at Hull, and as one of only a few such histories for university geography departments worldwide, this book helps us to understand what modern academic 'geography' is and how it developed.
