It provides an opportunity for fieldwork based researchers to share their experiences, photos, videos, souvenirs and advice from their travels.
These seminars often offer invaluable advice on how to (or how not to) do fieldwork and/or explore the world. Other times, it's just great fun to hear about what your fellow students or colleagues have been up to recently! The seminar presentations also offer useful supplementary material for Geography teachers - we've tried to include relevant resources and provide links to other materials to aid usage.
Intrepid Explorers is an educational activity co-founded by PhD students in King's College London in the Department of Geography.
It came about because whilst there were many lively and interesting research seminars, often based on fieldwork in far flung and extraordinary places across the globe. rarely was there an opportunity to hear about the amazing, bizarre, dangerous, funny tales behind getting those results.
