Welcome to Geography at Sussex

Situated next to a national park, close to Brighton and the coast, and just an hour from London, the University of Sussex provides the perfect location to study geography for both undergraduates and postgraduates. As part of the School of Global Studies, Geography at Sussex also has a unique international outlook, with research, study and career opportunities around the world.

Departmental seminars – Autumn 2022

We are delighted to be hosting a series of weekly seminars throughout Autumn 2022 on the theme of ‘Abolition Geography’. 

The seminar series was inspired by Professor Ruth Wilson Gilmore's (City University New York) recent book Abolition Geography: Essays towards Liberation (Verso, 2022), which gathers together in one volume her singular contribution to the politics of abolition as theorist, researcher, and organiser. The book speaks directly to the turbulent present, offering scholars and activists ways of seeing and doing.

A recording of the online seminar given by Professor Gilmore to start off the series is available here.
