Dr. Alexander Murphy
“Coping with a Fast-Changing World: Why Geography Matters”
Drawing on his latest book, Geography: Why It Matters, Murphy makes the case that a discipline concerned with how people, environments, and places are organized and interconnected is of vital importance in today's fast-changing world. He also considers geography's importance to a liberal education, arguing that "we all need geography".
