    How do graphic novels help understanding of natural disasters? Dr Gemma Sou

    On September 2017, the biggest storm in Caribbean history, Hurricane Maria struck Puerto Rico causing 30 billion US dollars in damage. But what happened after the storm passed?

    In this podcast we’re meeting Dr Gemma Sou, to find out about her research with 16 low-economy Puerto Richan families to discover how they recovered from the Hurricane and its long-term and hidden impacts. We’ll discuss how Dr Sou turned this research into a 20 page graphic novella to tell the story of a fictional family based upon these experiences.

    How is globalisation changing the countryside? Professor Michael Wood

    Globalisation is changing our world as we know it, it’s transforming economies, societies, and the environment. But whilst geographers have long studied its effects in global cities - there’s been little research on the concept of ‘a global countryside’ and the impacts of globalisation on rural spaces.

    In this podcast we meet Professor Michael Wood from Aberystwyth University. We discuss how migration, trade, and tourism has shaped the rural landscape in England and Wales.
