Royal Scottish Geographical Society: talks for February

rsgslogoThe Royal Scottish Geographical Society have another month of great talks lined up for February. Covering a broad range of geographically-related themes, the talks are: extreme diver and adventurer Andy Torbet recounts living and diving in and around iceberg and glaciers with “Operation Iceberg: Arctic Science, Adventure and Filming”; extreme film-maker Richard Else with “Thirty Years at the Sharp Edge” asks what motivates leading mountaineers to risk their lives; Kari Herbert, in “Heart of the Hero”, considers the lives of some of the world’s most famous polar explorers through the eyes of the women who inspired them to achieve great things; Alison McCleery’s talk, “The Falkland Islands: Fact, Fantasy and the Future”, debunks a few misconceptions and untangles the complexities of a geopolitical anomaly; and finally in “On the Map: Cartography and National Identity”, Mike Parker looks at how nations choose to portray themselves on maps, with emphasis on Scotland.
