Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group

Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group - Friday 23 February

The Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group (GFGRG) would like to invite expressions of interest for sponsored sessions at the RGS-IBG 2024 Annual Conference. The RGS-IBG Annual International Conference will take place from the evening of Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 August 2024 at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in London and online.

The conference will be chaired by Professor Stephen Legg (University of Nottingham), and the Chair’s theme is mapping. This theme ‘will explore mapping in all its forms, in a world that is saturated with maps, from historical cartography to the newest technologies and practices of map-making.' More information can be found here.

We welcome sessions that address pressing and topical issues relating to gender and feminist geographies, and particularly encourage those directly related to the conference theme.  We are happy to support a range of formats – panels, round tables, Q&As, practitioner forums, films, performances etc., as well as applications for co-sponsored with other research groups. 
You can find the RGS-IBG guidelines for session proposals online.   
The deadline for sponsored session proposal submissions to GFGRG is 23 February 2024. 
Please email queries and submissions to the group’s chair Kate Maclean including session title (max 15 words) and abstract (max 300 words), name(s) and affiliation(s) of the session convenor(s), and the anticipated format of the session. 
Session convenors will be notified soon after as to whether or not GFGRG will be able to provide sponsorship for the session. We can sponsor up to 12 session slots. Please bear in mind that sessions cannot occupy more than two slots in the whole programme. 
Once a sponsorship decision has been made, convenors will have until 1 March 2024 to provide the full session details (with all proposed papers and presenters) for final submission to the RGS-IBG.
