[br][br]A leading geographer in South Africa, Dr. Sutcliffe, who was actively involved in the struggle against apartheid, chaired the post-apartheid demarcation project that redefined municipal and provincial regions, substantially changing the politics in his country toward a more democratic system. In 1994, when apartheid ended, he became a member of the provincial KwaZulu-Natal legislature and, in 2007, earned the Anderson Medal award from the Association of American Geographers for his work in applied geography.[br][br][b]Click [link]here|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHrnDcXzcdM&feature=channel[/link] for Dr. Sutcliffe's complete lecture.[/b] [br][br][b]Click [link]here|http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83Vlwr_eXw0&feature=channel[/link] for the audience Q and A session with Dr. Sutcliffe.[/b]
