Hi everyone,

There's two weeks left to send in a short abstract for the virtual research showcase  - or simply register to attend! Details below.

Best wishes,


Cultural Geography Study Group  - Virtual Research Showcase

Friday 3 July 2020, online via Zoom


In place of the annual showcase of research that usually takes place at the IAG conference, this event will be an opportunity to share our research, receive feedback and have discussions, and importantly, socialise with others working in cultural geography.


We invite very short, informal presentations that take the 7-7 format: 7 slides and 7 minutes to present an overview or discussion point on your research.


This could include:

- Current projects that you are working on

- Brief overview of your PhD research

- Postponed, delayed, or disrupted fieldwork

- Ideas for future projects and research themes


We want to stress this will be an informal, collegial get-together to share ideas, catch up with peers, and open dialogue across and beyond cultural geographers in Australia. Each presenter will be able to share their screen (powerpoint slides, or similar) and have 10 minutes for questions, and a group discussion at the end.


The showcase is free to attend, open to everyone (within and beyond the IAG membership) and will be facilitated via Zoom, from 10am-1pm on Friday 3rd July.


Please send a short summary or abstract of your research (150 words) to Kaya Barry (k.barry@griffith.edu.au) and Michelle Duffy (michelle.duffy@newcastle.edu.au) by COB 22 June.

Alternatively, if you are interested in attending but not presenting, send an email to Kaya and Michelle to register for the zoom link.
