What? The UK’s prime minister is a geographer?

What is geography? It is a simple yet misleading question. Literally, it is derived from the Greek words “Geo” (Earth) and “graphy” (to write). Many people would probably answer that question with something related to maps or state capitals. Those answers do not even scratch the surface in describing the discipline of geography. The question was inspired by recent news reports that the next prime minster of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, is a geographer trained at Oxford University. Wait, but does a geographer have the “gravitas” and perspective to be a world leader?
