2008: Liverpool

The 2008 Postgraduate Forum Mid-term Conference was held at the University of Liverpool’s Department of Geography, on Saturday, 1 March 2008. In addition to postgraduate students’ presentations, two workshops took place:

Academic Careers Workshop – how to begin to think about and develop an academic career while still a postgraduate. Session run by staff at the University of Liverpool; and
2) Introduction to Publishing – run by the RGS-IBG Journal and Book Series Editors and led by Prof. Alison Blunt, Editor of Transactions. This session aimed to help postgraduates understand how to get their articles published.

There was also a wine reception sponsored by Geography Compass, a new online journal from Wiley Blackwell. The Postgraduate Forum would like to thank the local organisers at the University of Liverpool, Ivo Wengraf and Andrew Davies, for organising the conference.
