Annual International Conference courtesy of Nando Machado
We are delighted to announce the theme and open submissions for the Society’s 2023 Annual International Conference. The submissions portal will open in early January, and the deadline for all submissions is Friday 17 March 2023.
The conference will be chaired by Professor Harriet Bulkeley, Durham University, on the theme Climate changed geographies. It will take place in London, at both the Society and Imperial College London’s nearby South Kensington campus, and online, from the evening of Tuesday 29 August to Friday 1 September 2023.
The conference theme invites a conversation about how climate change is, and is not, changing our discipline – our ways of knowing, exploring, understanding and acting geographically – and with what consequences. It also opens up debates about the kinds of geographies – urban, political, social, cultural, economic, regional, glacial, fluvial and more – that are and are not being changed by climate change.
Building on past sustainability initiatives, we will also be exploring different ways of delivering the annual conference to make it as sustainable as possible. We are delighted to be piloting a new ‘hubs’ model at this year's conference, allowing online attendees to connect in person in their local region. To reflect this, we are also introducing a new registration fee category of remote viewing hub, and one day of plenaries from hubs across the globe, to connect participants across time zones.
