Description/Abstract

This year saw the 30th anniversary of the
Transport Studies Unit at the University of
Oxford. To commemorate this important
milestone a Festschrift-style seminar was held at
St Anne’s College in October. External speakers
included Sir Christopher Foster (RAC
Foundation), Professor Phil Goodwin (University
College London), Professor Peter Jones
(University of Westminster), Professor Margaret
Grieco (Napier University), Dr Graham Parkhurst
(University of the West of England), Dr Amanda
Root (University of Gloucestershire), Dr Joyce
Dargay and Dr Sandy Roberston (University
College London). Internal speakers included
Professor Gordon Clark, Dr John Preston, Dr
Torben Holvad, Dr Francesca Pagliara and
Christian Brand. Full details are available on the

The year also saw a number of staff changes.
After a successful year with the Unit, Dr
Francesca Pagliara left to re-join the University
of Naples, having been elected to a lectureship.
After 20 years working together, Sylvia Boyce
resigned from the post of the Unit’s
Administrator and Ann Heath retired from the
post of the Unit’s Librarian and Administrative
Assistant. Katharine Silk was appointed to the
post of Administrator, whilst Sylvia was
appointed to replace Ann as the Unit’s Librarian
and Administrative Assistant.
A number of important developments are
anticipated in 2004. In particular, it is expected
to hold interviews for a lectureship in Road
Transport and the Environment in May, part funded
by the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund. At the
end of 2004, the current plan is that TSU will
move into a new building, designated the Oxford
University Centre for the Environment, along
with the Department of Geography and the
Environmental Change Institute
