Abstract

This paper is a revised and extended version of a research report presented in December 1982 in the joint context of the Department's Research Seminar Series and the M.Sc. programme in Geography and Education. The geographical study of seaports and seaport systems is recognised as one of the Department's major interests in the context of research in human geography, and several members of staff and a number of research students and assistants are involved in work in this field or have recently contributed towards its development. An attempt is made in this paper to review the development of port geography and port-related research at Southampton in the context of the wider fields of urban and transport geography within which this work is set; to identify a series of themes emerging from recent research; to indicate some present trends; and to look towards the future in terms of research plans and priorities. It is not intended in this paper to attempt an analysis of the entire field of port geography, or to review the recent literature of this field as a whole. Many of the works cited in reference themselves contain extensive bibliographies on general and particular themes, and no purpose would be served by reproducing those bibliographies here. In order to place the Southampton contribution to port studies in a wider context, however, reference is made at various points in this paper to comparable and related work undertaken elsewhere.
