Final Call for papers: Sessions sponsored by the Postgraduate Forum at the RGS-IBG Annual Conference

New Frontiers in Postgraduate Geography

RGS-IBG Annual Conference, London. 28-30th August, 2013.

Submissions are invited for paper presentations that cover new and emerging themes in postgraduate geography. Although not restricted to, presentations are welcomed that address the conference theme of New Geographical Frontiers. In particular this session welcomes presenters wishing to share ideas about making use of different media in research, different ways of presenting and disseminating research findings and new frontiers in interdisciplinary research. Presenters are particularly encouraged to raise theoretical or methodological challenges associated with their research as these sessions provide an unique opportunity for new researchers to present work-in-progress in an open and supportive environment and to gain individual feedback on their research from those with similar experiences.

This session provides a friendly and supportive space to present and explore the innovative and exciting geographical research being done by postgraduates and early career researchers. The format consists of a series of 15-minute presentations summarizing either a completed research project or research in progress followed by the opportunity for questions and a general discussion of new and emerging themes coming from the sessions. They also provide participants with a rapid and intensive update and overview of emerging postgraduate geographical research.

Please send a title and short abstract (max. 250 words) by 10th February 2013 to the session organiser Sophie Yarker (s.k.yarker@newcastle.ac.uk)
