Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Annual International Conference 2013 - Geographies of Children, Youth and Families Research Group

Call for Sessions

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) is pleased to announce that the Call for Sessions and Papers has opened for its Annual International Conference 2013 (AC2013). The conference, which will be chaired by Professor Jonathan Rigg (Durham University), will have as its theme New geographical frontiers.

Please note that the conference has returned to London in August:

Date: Wednesday 28 to Friday 30 August (with an opening reception on Tuesday 27 August)

Location: Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), London

Members of the geographical and related communities are invited to propose sessions for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2013. The Geographies of Children, Youth and Families Research Group (GCYFRG) would like to invite proposals for sessions sponsored by the GCYFRG. We would welcome joint sessions with other research groups.

The RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2013 has a theme of new geographical frontiers, inviting exploration of the many ways that frontier can be employed as a concept, a metaphor or as a point of empirical focus, such as in geographical theory, inter-disciplinary research, and the contribution and impact of geography in society and economy.

The GCYFRG is inviting session proposals (either GCYFRG sponsored or co-sponsored with other research groups) relating to its general interests in geographies of children, young people and families. Session proposals should link in some way to the conference theme, although this is not absolutely necessary. Further information about the research group and its aims can be found at http://www.gcyf.org.uk/aims.html. Please note that the list of topics stated in the research group’s aims is not exhaustive and sessions relating to other relevant themes will be fully considered.

Sessions may take the form of presented papers, panels, practitioner forums, discussions or workshops. Innovative sessions and formats are encouraged. A small number of sessions containing Skype or other distance presentations can be supported at AC2013, but must be agreed with the conference organisers in advance so they can be scheduled at RGS-IBG for appropriate technical support.

Proposals for, or questions about, GCYFRG sponsored sessions should be sent to Dr Natalie Beale n.h.beale.academic@gmail.com. Proposals should be submitted by 2nd December 2012. Please send proposals to the email address stated and not my Teesside University account.
