Bookmark and Share

A University of Oregon professor will discuss how the study of geography can help solve some of the world's most pressing problems during a discussion later this month at South Dakota State University.

Alexander Murphy is a professor of political-cultural geography at the University of Oregon. He will give a presentation about geography titled "Understanding the Changing Planet: Opportunities and Challenges in Geography in the 21st Century" at 5 p.m. on Nov. 14 at SDSU.

The presentation will include ideas in an earlier study Murphy took part in that examined geography's role in topics like environmental change, expanding cities and new technologies.

Murphy says many people may be surprised to learn that geographers can help with society's large issues.
