Edinburgh 2012: ‘Challenges & Connections’

RGS-IBG Annual Conference, Edinburgh. 3-5th July, 2012.Call for papers: Sessions sponsored by the Postgraduate ForumNew and Emerging Themes in Postgraduate Geography
Submissions are invited for paper presentations that cover new and emerging themes in postgraduate geography. Presentations that address the conference theme of Security of Geography / Geography of  Security are particularly welcomed, but not restricted to, and those that make use of different media are especially encouraged. The format for the sessions is a series of 15-minute presentations summarising 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. 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. They also provide participants with a rapid and intensive update and overview of emerging postgraduate research.
Please send a title and short abstract (max. 250 words) by Tuesday 31st January 2012 to the session organisers, Keri Jenner (kaj204@exeter.ac.uk) and Sophie Yarker (s.k.yarker@newcastle.ac.uk)
