Today marks one year since we launched a call for contributions on COVID-19 on the Society’s research blog, Geography Directions.
Since then, we have published over 150 blog posts, many of them on COVID-19, its spread, effects and legacies, but also on a variety of other contemporary issues. The site now has over 16,000 followers and has topped 50,000 views over the last year, indicating there is a real appetite for geographical voices and expertise to be applied to current events.
We are still actively seeking contributions to Geography Directions on COVID-19, but also on a variety of other issues, particularly: regional inequality and leveling up, inequality in its various forms, and climate change and action, as well as contributions around LGBTQ+- inclusive fieldwork.
If you are interested in writing for the blog, full instructions can be found on the Geography Directions website. Any questions can be directed to the Society’s Managing Editor, Phil Emmerson, at email@example.com.
