I have recently given the annual Miller Lecture at Penn State University, on 24 April. You can see the talk at: http://www.tinyurl.com/sp09millerlecture
I have recently got back from Ritsumeikan University where I and my collegaue Alex Singleton were invited by Professor Keiji Yano to give a week long introduction to GIS course. As part of this teaching activity the students were set a group project to examine the geographic distribution and origins of five Japanese names. These presentations can be found on the ucl spatial-literacy website by clicking here.
