Welcome to the new Social and Cultural Geography Research Group website. In this post, I’d like to introduce the new committee and a few new resources on this site. First, my thanks to Phil Hubbard for all his work in chairing the group from 2006-2009, and to Kezia Barker, Amanda Claremont, Elaine Ho, Peter Hopkins and Jamie Lorimer for their contributions to the smooth running of the committee.
I am delighted to be taking on the mantle of chair, with support from Russell Hitchings (moving from the committee to secretary), Louise Holt (who has a further year as Treasurer), and a large and vibrant committee. You can read more about the new members of the committee here.
We have designed a new website, which we hope will make it easier for us to communicate with you, and for you to find out relevant information about the group’s activities. We have added links to journals, RGS/IBG sessions and other activities supported by the group. These resources will be developed further over the next couple of months. The SCGRG is a large and diverse group. If we have missed anything off, please let us know. We hope you find these useful and we look forward to hearing from you.
