The Public Seminar Series provides a venue for academic exchange between the HKBU geography community and academia at large, and among our own faculty and students. We normally organize about 5-6 seminars per semester. Speakers in our seminar series are mostly scholars and active researchers from overseas or sister institutions in Hong Kong. Over the past several years the series has featured speakers from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Germany and Mainland China. Members of our own Department, especially new faculty members and post-graduate students, also present their work in the series.
