Soapbox Session – Call for participation

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 from all geographers for a Soapbox Session. Presenters will have 90 seconds only to talk about their ongoing or completed research, from any field within geography. The ability to succinctly describe research in an engaging and open way in a short space of time (also called the ‘elevator pitch’) is an important skill for every researcher.  This skill is needed throughout academic life, whether the audience is a colleague at a conference, a potential funder, or for a video clip online. This session will provide an opportunity for postgraduates and researchers to get the most important points and themes of their work across, and for session participants to hear about a wide range of geographical research.Please send your title by Thursday 21st April 2011 (extended deadline) to the session organizer, wendy.miller@plymouth.ac.uk
