    Vega Medalist Prof Gillian Hart gives Public Lecture

    Gillian Hart, Professor of Geography at University of Californa (Berkeley USA), will give a public lecture in Humanistiska Teatern on Thursday 26/4 14-16. See more information here.

    In February 2018, professor Hart was awarded the Vega Medal by the Swedish Society of Geography and Anthropology (SSAG).  SSAG writes:

    "Professor Emerita Hart has established a worldwide reputation as one of human geography’s leading thinkers: an unrivalled expert on the dialectic of global and local change, on how this dialectic plays out in the rural regions of Southern Africa and Southeast Asia, and on the Gramscian political-economic theory to which she has often turned to understand these issues. Professor Emerita Hart is a world-renowned expert on questions of gender, race and power that she has explored through critical engagements with labor studies, development studies, and agrarian and regional studies."
