RGS/IBG Annual Conference news

The Annual International Conference of the RGS-IBG starts on the 1st of September 2010 at the Society in London.  This 3-day event attracts over 1,000 geographers from around the world.  The meeting this year is chaired by Neil Wrigley, University of Southampton, and the theme is ‘Confronting the Challenges of the Post-Crisis Global Economy and Environment’.

The SCGRG is delighted to sponsor and co-sponsor 12 events at the 2010 RGS-IBG Annual Conference.  It is the sole sponsor for three sessions on ‘Geography and the Future’ organised by Ben Anderson and Peter Adey on Friday, and two paper sessions on ‘Geography and Twentieth Century British Poetry’ and a poetry reading organised by Amy Cutler.  The full details of all SCGRG sponsored sessions are listed on the SCGRG conference page. We hope that you will give the organisers and presenters your support.

The Social and Cultural Geography Research Group AGM will be held during the conference in the RGS-IBG Tea Room on Friday from 13:10.  A full agenda will be circulated at the meeting.  All are welcome.
