The Society’s academic publications are profiled through a number of exciting events at this year’s RGS-IBG Annual International Conference.
Tim Schwanen, Director of the Transport Studies Unit at the University of Oxford, will give the Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers Lecture on Wednesday 31 August. Tim’s lecture is entitled ‘Thinking complex interconnectivities, transition, nexus and geography’, Jenny Pickerill (University of Sheffield) and Zarina Patel (University of Cape Town) will respond as discussants.
Area will sponsor a panel session on the ‘Ethics in/of geographical research’, also on Wednesday 31 August, which will inaugurate an exciting new and regular feature in the journal. Panellists include Sarah Marie Hall (University of Manchester), James Cheshire (UCL), Stephen Tooth (Aberystwyth), Jen Dickinson (University of Leicester) and Andy Nobes (INASP/AuthorAid). The panel session will be followed by tea and cake.
‘Author meets critics’ sessions will be held for three RGS-IBG Book Series publications: Nick Gill’s Nothing Personal?: Geographies of Governing and Activism in the British Asylum System; Fiona McConnell’s Rehearsing the State: The Political Practices of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile; and Philippa Williams’ Everyday Peace? Politics, Citizenship and Muslim Lives in India.
There will be a drinks reception in the Society’s Members’ Room on Wednesday evening to thank those who have reviewed for RGS-IBG journals over the last years. Editors from across the Society’s journals (Area, The Geographical Journal, Geo: Geography and Environment, and Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers) will be in attendance.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Editors of the Society’s journals for organising, and participating in, these events. We look forward to seeing you there, should you be attending this year’s Annual International Conference.
To mark Refugee Week, we’ve worked with Professor Heaven Crawley, to produce educational resources for geography teachers at GCSE and A Level.
