Our Research and Working Groups bring together active researchers and those with a professional interest in a particular aspect of geography and related disciplines.
The Gender and Feminist Geography Research Group (GFGRG); the Race, Culture and Equality Working Group (RACE); and the Space Sexualities and Queer Research Group (SCGRG) encourage, promote and facilitate research, teaching and positive action through collaboration, both within geography and between geography and other disciplines.
