Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


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 web at: 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
