Mansfields Geography Success

10/07/2012
2012 was another great year for Mansfield Geography.  Six of the nine Geographers took First Class degrees in the Final Honour School, with Upper Seconds for all the others, and a number of University prizes were won by the College.
Matt Jones won the Gibbs Prize for Geography for being placed first overall in the FHS.
Chris Major won the A.J. Herbertson Prize for the best dissertation in human geography, for ‘In your dreamland: Excavating memories of kinaesthetic and sensuous experience at the seaside fairground’, which dealt with the imaginative geographies of Margate.
Chris Major was also awarded a Gibbs Prize for being placed third equal in the FHS.
Chris Goodman was runner-up for the Herbertson Prize with his dissertation ‘"The best is actually friendly": a study of the configuration of ‘wild(er)ness’, ‘domestication’ and ‘captivity’ through the performance’ of re-wilding’, for which he investigated the re-introduction of lion populations to parts of Africa.
Dissertations by Mansfield geographers were submitted by the University to national competitions run by the Geographies of Leisure and Tourism Research Group (Major), the Social and Cultural Geography Research Group (Goodman), the History and Philosophy of Geography Research Group (Jones), and the Urban Geography Research Group (Matt Irani) of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers).
Another Mansfield geographer in this decorated year, Chris Fairweather, rowed in the record-breaking Isis crew of 2012 in the term before his finals.
Two of the Mansfield first year Geographers achieved Distinctions in the Preliminary Examination in Geography in 2012, and together with other good performances, this bodes well for the future.
