A key project within the School University Research Partnership framework, Mapping Interfaces, is now getting well under way.  The project is led by Dr Stephanie Koerner, Honorary Lecturer at Manchester University.  Stephanie’s aim is to get Year 9 Geography pupils to understand how studying ancient sites and cultures can help us understand better the patterns which are known as globalisation.

The short course is looking at how physical geography has influenced civilisation, ranging from the development of civilisation in volcano encircled valleys in the Americas to the development of trade and early forms of writing in Egypt.

The project will culminate with a workshop at the Kanaris Lecture Theatre at the Manchester Museum, in which the MCMA learners will get the rare opportunity to view evidence from the ancient civilisations first hand along with pupils from two other Manchester Schools
