Overview

In tandem with many schools embracing a post-disciplinary approach to the curriculum, geography itself seems to have fragmented, struggling for its identity and is, arguably, lost in the post.

This lecture posits that contemporary geography is a school subject of great significance and has a lot to offer children and young people growing up in a confusing, rapidly changing and dangerous world. Well-prepared teachers can use this subject in a way that contributes both to their own and their students’ capabilities. Lambert argues that geography is re-emerging as a subject discipline for its times, both in academia and in the public realm. In the context of our collective need to more fully to understand human occupancy of the Earth, geography in schools has a new role to play.
