Hello all and apologies for cross-posting. Please circulate this call for papers for the 2011 RGS/IBG Postgrad Mid-Term Conference in Durham on April 1st-3rd to postgraduates at your institutions: it's a great event which offers an opportunity for postgraduates to practice presenting their work to their peers (and its timing makes it a good pre-AAG warm up!). Postgraduates from geography and any related disciplines are welcome, as are postgraduates from outside of the UK.

Many Thanks,
Robert Shaw [log in to unmask]

RGS-IBG Postgraduate Mid-Term Conference 2011: Geographical Futures

This is a call for papers for the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Mid-term Conference, to be hosted over the weekend of 1st-3rd April 2011 at the Department of Geography, Durham University. The aim of the conference is to provide a welcoming, relaxed and supportive environment for postgraduates to present any aspect of their research to their peers. Papers with any theme on any topic within geography or a related discipline are invited, and postgraduates should feel comfortable presenting their work at any stage of its development.

We also welcome in particular any papers or posters which deal with this year’s conference theme: ‘Geographical Futures’. Fundamentally, all postgraduate work requires some sort of orientation towards a future goal, namely the PhD thesis. Many postgraduates may also be hoping to develop future careers as geographers. How does an orientation towards these two futures affect the work of postgraduates and the research that they do? Presenters might also want to consider how their research might open up future paths of investigation within geography or their sub-discipline, what futures geography as a whole moving in and what futures are being neglected. We particularly encourage delegates to address the issue of originality in their papers and posters, in recognition of this central facet of postgraduate scholarship, and to reflect upon the original contribution of their research and the futures that this presents. Thus, papers and posters may vary from, but are not limited to, explicit theorisations of future and futurity to considerations about how postgraduate scholarship is aligned and shaped but also moulds and enacts future trends in the discipline.

This broad theme is designed to appeal to postgraduates at any stage of their degree working in or on geographical topics, from both the physical and human domains of geography, and to all related disciplines.

We are delighted to announce that Sarah Whatmore (Professor of Environment and Public Policy, Oxford University) will present the pre-conference plenary to the conference theme of ‘Geographical Futures’ on the evening of Friday 1st April. This event has been kindly sponsored by Durham University’s Institute of Advanced Study. Postgraduate presentations will take place on Saturday 2nd April, followed by the opportunity to take part in workshops led by academic members of Durham’s Geography Department. The conference will conclude with a formal conference dinner on the evening of April 2nd. This will be held in the shadow of Durham Cathedral at St. Chad’s College.

Abstracts
Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words to the conference to either [log in to unmask] or [log in to unmask] by no later than 1st February 2011. Paper presentations should be no more than 12 minutes’ length, and posters should be prepared on A0 paper.

All delegates must register: please see http://www.dur.ac.uk/geography/conferences/rgs_ibg_midterm/registration/ for registration forms.
