Undergraduate Dissertation Prize

The History and Philosophy of Geography Research Group awards an Undergraduate Dissertation Prize of £50 for outstanding original work in the history and/or philosophy of human geography, physical geography or associated fields. We welcome nominations that examine geographical knowledge, discourses and practices in academia, but also within schools and the public sphere.

Nominations are requested from Dissertation Supervisors or Heads of Department. The dissertation should have been completed within the past two years (2006-08) and be written in English. We welcome nominations not only from the UK but also from other countries. Depending on the number and quality of submissions, the prize may not be awarded every year.

The prize committee is formed by Dr Pauline Couper (University College Plymouth St Mark and St John, UK), Dr Mathilde Leduc-Grimaldi (Royal Museum for Central Africa, Belgium) and Dr Avril Maddrell (University of the West of England, UK).

Please address all questions and submit an (unmarked) copy of the dissertation with your letter of recommendation to:
