Seminar series

 

Spring 2013

February 6, 15.15, Venue: Lilla GIS

Andreas Viberg Dept. of Archaeology and Classical studies, Stockholm University RHN Seminar: Remnant echoes of the past. Archaeological geophysical prospection in Sweden.


February 27. RHN Workshop: Complex Systems Dynamics.

Organised in cooperation with PhD Peeter Maandi, Dept. of Social and Economic Geography and funded by SALT. The workshop introduces a series of thematic seminars, which will address complex dynamics of socio-natural systems and GIS. The workshop will function as a conceptual background to the continuing RHN seminars and related activities. The objective is that each participant of the seminar series will be able to address “complexity” in landscape in the end of the thematic series. An invitation for registering to the workshop and a detailed schedule and reading list can be found here.
