Milieu 2020 - the journal that even the coronavirus could not defeat.
Geography- Milieu 2020 - the annual journal of the Maynooth Student Geography Society - was been published today (Friday 8th May 2020). It is now 45 years since the very first edition of Milieu was published by the Student Geography Society in 1975. The journal has been published every year (with some occasional "breaks") since then. This year, sadly, due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the Society has been unable to produce a printed version of the journal for the first time ever. However, we are delighted to offer you with an online/electronic edition of Milieu 2020, which will be formally launched online via a Teams meeting at 2.00pm today - simply click on the link below. We hope you enjoy reading Milieu 2020 and we also hope that this acts as a good way to mark the very last day of lectures for the 2019-20 academic year and the last ever day of undergraduate/postgraduate classes for the Third/Final Year students and the MA/MSc class students.
It is fair to say that there would be no Milieu this year without the efforts/actions of a number of people. We would like to thank the Student Geography Society for all their work on this and for helping to carry on a proud tradition of publishing a student journal, especially in their trying times. Especial thanks to all those who contributed to this year's MIlieu - thanks to all of you this year's edition is a bumper edition (running to 66 pages!) and the quality of the work/articles has been excellent, while the photographs of student/Department activities that have been included offer an excellent reminder of the (very different!) academic year that is now drawing to a close. Finally, we must thank the Editorial Team for Milieu 2020. They have gone "beyond the beyond" in terms of their efforts to get a high quality edition of Milieu published this year and hopefully you can appreciate their efforts in the high quality issue of Milieu that's attached with this email. So, we say thank you to William Durkan, Siobhan Madden, Caoilfhionn D'Arcy and Conchúr O'Maonaigh - the Editorial Team of Milieu 2020!
We hope you all enjoy MIlieu! If you know anyone who might be interested in a copy of Geography- Milieu 2020 , please do direct them to this page.
