Geography Speaker Series

The Department of Geography hosts a Speaker Series every year with stimulating geographic presentations from leading researchers in the field, intermingled with talks given by visiting scholars and OSU faculty. We feature two main Marquee Events each year in this series, the

Edward J. Taaffe Physical Geography Colloquium and the Robinson Cartography Colloquium

The Speaker Series is funded in part through the John Nelson Endowment and the alumni, faculty, and friends of the Ohio State Geography endowment.
