The Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) has recognised six students from the School of Geography.
Elliot Arthur-Worsop was highly commended with a third prize by the Food Geographies Working Group, for his dissertation on Vegetarianism: A new social movement within the National Meatscape of Argentina? His supervisor was Dr Carol Morris.
Elizabeth Morrison was highly commended with a third prize from the Population Geography Research Group, for her dissertation on The refashioning of Cobham through counter-urbanisation: Trends, motives and effects in a Surrey town. Her supervisor was Dr Susanne Seymour.
Robert Frost received a runner-up prize from the Historical Geography Research Group for his dissertation, In search of health, and, incidentally, of other things: British visitors to Egypt, c. 1830-1930. He was supervised initially by Georgina Endfield at the University of Liverpool, and then by Charles Watkins.
Raheam Amon-Ra, Christopher Bright and Lydia Tillery were all recently awarded teacher training scholarships, also from the Royal Geographical Society.
