Abstract

The place of geography in higher institutions reflects the outcome of a range of social practices that in some locations have enabled the discipline to grow and prosper and elsewhere have forced it to struggle and even disappear. Local practices are of particular importance, but are often ignored in the history of geography. The paper also asks the question "Why should a university have a geography department ?" and offers some answers from the local context of 75 years of geography at the University of Dundee
