@PKGeog on Twitter
@PKGeog is the Twitter account I use for my Geography-related tweets.
This web page is just a landing point for people who come from Twitter to see who I am.



Who am I?

I did Geography at school in the 1970s, and have gradually made my way through a Geography degree at Oxford, a Geography PhD at Aberdeen and several decades of teaching and researching Geography at Keele University.

I am a Chartered Geographer, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a National Teaching Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy.

I have published about 60 academic and scientific papers, along with a number of books including several undergraduate textbooks and study aids. You can see them here, if you are interested.

Why @PKGeog ?

I used to post Geography tweets both on my regular twitter account @PeterGKnight and on the account I used for students at Keele, @KeelesGeogs . However, the Geography on @PeterGKnight gets lost amongst the other things I post up there, and the @KeeleGeogs account is a little too "official" for some of the things I like to post up, so I started this completely independent personal account just for my own Geography stuff! @KeeleGeogs is now strictly for Keele things and @PKGeog is for anything else I want to put about Geography!

Who is it for?

@PKGeog is for anyone who finds it useful or enjoyable: teachers, students... anybody who is interested. It is not intended specifically for my own students, but of course they may find it relevant. It is not in any way associated with my employer and, as these things always seem to say, the views expressed here... etc.

What if I don't like it?

If you don't like it, don't look at it!

Want to know more?

If you want to know more, then you can furtle about this web site and see if there's anything interesting. It's a bit rambling and lots of it has fallen out of date or into disuse, but you are welcome to it for what it's worth. Good luck.


Oh, and what about the #GeoHaiku hashtag?? Check it out here.
