Social and Cultural Geography Research Group

Social and Cultural Geography Research Group - Wednesday 14 February

The RGS-IBG Social and Cultural Geography Research Group (SCGRG) would like to invite expressions of interest for sponsored sessions for the RGS-IBG 2024 Annual Conference, which will take place in London and online from the evening of Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 August. The theme for the 2024 Annual Conference, chaired by Professor Stephen Legg (University of Nottingham, UK), is Mapping. You can find out more about the conference here.

SCGRG is keen to sponsor sessions that directly relate to the conference theme, as well as make room for a wide range of other issues and topics. We welcome sessions which will be of wide significance and interest to social and cultural geographers, will meaningfully contribute to ongoing debates in social and cultural geography, and demonstrate substantive, methodological or theoretical novelty.

Please take note of the guidelines for session organisers.

Please submit your expressions of interest for SCGRG sponsorship by 5pm GMT on Wednesday 14 February 2024 through:

We will endeavour to inform applicants of the outcome by Friday 23 February 2024, ahead of final submission to the RGS-IBG by Friday 1 March 2024.

Questions about SCGRG sponsored sessions should be directed to the SCGRG conference officer Rishika Mukhopadhyay
