The Society’s 31 Research Groups bring together active researchers on particular aspects of geography and related disciplines. They support and promote their area of geography by organising events, offering dissertation prizes and providing support and funding for postgraduates.
Here is a roundup of their recent activity:

The Geographies of Justice Research Group have launched a new Dialogues in Radical Geography seminar series. The first session featured Professor Jenny Pickerill, University of Sheffield and Dr Olivia Mason, University of Glasgow. The next seminar on 14 June features Dr Mara Ferreri (Northumbria University).
The Historical Geography Research Group (HGRG) and the Race Culture and Equality Working Group are sponsoring an online event Learning and Teaching About the Geography of Africa, which provides a forum for challenging myopic approaches to the continent. The HGRG also recently held an online seminar series covering topics such as academic writing, turning your thesis into a book, and historical geography beyond the archive.
The Postgraduate Forum held their annual mid-term conference in April, featuring workshops, papers and keynotes lectures by Dr Olivia Mason and Dr Hannah Awcock.
