Extended deadline Friday 8th Feb – RGS-IBG: Emerging Themes in Postgraduate Population Geography

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

Deadline: Friday  8th Feb

Sponsored by the Population Geography Research Group

Organisers

Suzanne Beech (Queen’s University Belfast)

Stacey Balsdon (Loughborough University)

Population Geographies continue to develop theoretically, conceptually and empirically – building upon previous calls to refine the sub-discipline (e.g. Boyle and Graham, 2001). Postgraduates are often at the forefront of these ongoing debates, and this session aims to explore the diverse, yet inter-related, nature of studies within this sub-discipline. It is hoped that this session will be both stimulating and thought-provoking, while providing a friendly and supportive forum for postgraduates to present at a major international conference. We welcome submissions that are pushing the frontiers of postgraduate population geographies forward, and they can be variously theoretical, empirical and/or methodological in their orientation.

Please send abstracts (max 250 words) to sbeech01@qub.ac.uk and s.l.balsdon@lboro.ac.uk by Friday 8th February. Paper presentations are intended to be 15 minutes in length, with 5 additional minutes for discussion.

‘Britain On The Move’ conference at RGS-IBG: Call for volunteers

The Population Geography Research Group (PopGRG) of the RGS-IBG (PopGRG) will be organising a two-day conference: ‘Britain On The Move’: Migration And Mobility Processes And Patterns In The 21st Century’.

The conference will take place at the Headquarters of the Royal Geographical Society-Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG), London, 17-18 December 2012.

The conference will include 9 sessions (each with presentations from 3 leading scholars in the field) on: i) Lifecourse/family and Migration; ii) Education and Migration; iii) Ethnicity/race and Migration; iv) Housing and Migration; v) Employment and Migration; vi) Health and Migration; vii) Lifestyle and Migration; viii) Performing migration, and; ix) Ageing and Migration.

The PopGRG have obtained funding from the RGS-IBG Research Groups Grant competition to provide travel bursaries of £150 each to attend the conference.  If you obtain a travel bursary your registration costs will be waived by the conference organisers.

We are seeking 9 volunteers to attend the conference.  As part of your attendance, you will be required to take brief notes at one of the sessions, and to feed back to facilitators of two teaching and learning workshops on ‘Teaching Migration’ at the conference, funded by GEES HEA. This will involve making notes of the key themes that could be taught at university.

This is a great opportunity to hear experts in these fields.

If you are interested in attending the conference and would like to obtain a travel bursary or for further information, please contact me via email at S.L.Balsdon@lboro.ac.uk.

Kind regards,

Stacey Balsdon
