New and Emerging Themes in Geographical Research – Call for papers

Last chance for submissions to the RGS-IBG Annual Conference 31st Aug – 2nd Sept 2011!
Session sponsored by the Postgraduate Forum (PGF)
Submissions are invited for short presentations that cover new and emerging themes in the wide range of fields covered by geographical research. The format for the sessions is a series of 10-minute presentations summarizing either a completed research project or research in progress. The presentations will be followed by a 30- to 45-minute moderated discussion with presenters and the audience. The sessions are discussion-oriented, and presenters are particularly encouraged to raise theoretical or methodological challenges associated with their research. These sessions provide an open and supportive environment for new researchers presenting their work.
Please send a title and short abstract (max. 250 words) by Thursday 21st April 2011 (extended deadline) to the session organizer, wendy.miller@plymouth.ac.uk
