Everyone is welcome to attend this department of Geography Research Seminar with Wayne K. Davies, Professor Emeritus of Geography, University of Calgary, as he presents Constructing Geography.

Professor Davies holds a BSc and PhD from the University of Wales and has been a member of the Geography Department at the University of Calgary since 1974.

A scholar with a wide range of interests he is perhaps best known for such important works as The Conceptual Revolution in Geography, Factorial Ecology, Urban Social Structure, and Communities within Cities: A Geographical Perspective. In his most recent book entitled, Writing Geographical Exploration: James and the Northwest Passage 1631-1633 he not only chronicles the “Strange and Dangerous Voyage of Captaine Thomas James”, but more generally he sets out to bring to light the contributions of the Welsh to the exploration of North America.
