SUBJECT: PSA: Henrietta Harvey lecturer discusses oil's unconventional future

DATE: January 12, 2015

A professor of economic geography at Durham University (U.K) will deliver the Henrietta Harvey lecture at Memorial University’s St. John’s campus on Thursday, Jan. 15.

Dr. Gavin Bridge’s research focuses on the extractive industries of oil, gas and mining and the spatial and temporal dynamics of natural resource development.

His lecture will focus on how the nature of oil is changing as a result of technology, price fluctuations and government policy. Dr. Bridge will demonstrate some of the emergent geographies of supply and demand associated with oil’s unconventional future and what they mean for established geographies of production, consumption and regulations.

The lecture will take place in the Bruneau Centre’s Innovation Theatre (IIC-2001) and begins at 7 p.m. All are welcome and free parking is available in lot 15B.
