2nd CFP: Emerging Themes in Postgraduate Population Geography

RGS-IBG Annual Conference 2013, London 28-30 August 2013. Session sponsored by the Population Geography Research Group


Suzanne Beech (Queen’s University Belfast)

Stacey Balsdon (Loughborough University)

Population Geographies continue to develop theoretically, conceptually and empirically – building upon previous calls to refine the sub-discipline (e.g. Boyle and Graham, 2001). Postgraduates are often at the forefront of these ongoing debates, and this session aims to explore the diverse, yet inter-related, nature of studies within this sub-discipline. It is hoped that this session will be both stimulating and thought-provoking, while providing a friendly and supportive forum for postgraduates to present at a major international conference. We welcome submissions that are pushing the frontiers of postgraduate population geographies forward, and they can be variously theoretical, empirical and/or methodological in their orientation.

Please send abstracts (max 250 words) to sbeech01@qub.ac.uk and s.l.balsdon@lboro.ac.uk by Tuesday 5 February. Paper presentations are intended to be 15 minutes in length, with 5 additional minutes for discussion.
