The Hutton Club
Welcome to The Hutton Club, the University of Edinburgh's seminar and discussion series for earth surface processes and physical geography.
Our speakers come from both Edinburgh and further afield. If you would be interested in coming to speak, or would like to meet one of our speakers prior to a talk, please get in touch.
Seminars are usually held on Fridays at 4pm in the Old Library, Institute of Geography, Drummond Street. All are welcome and free refreshments are provided!
We coordinate our seminars with the EEO-AGI seminar series where possible to provide a single seminar most Friday afternoons.
