Colloquium

The CGA hosts the monthly "Harvard Geography Colloquium" in which we invite leading geospatial researchers to present cutting edge geographic research in a seminar format. Our goal is to provide the Harvard community with a forum to highlight the unique perspectives, findings, and directions of contemporary geography. The group typically meets monthly during the academic year. Check our Events Calendar for actual dates. All are welcome and free lunch is provided for the first 20 attendees.
