Historical Geography Research Group – Conference

Practising Historical Geography

The 18th Annual Postgraduate and Undergraduate one day Conference for postgraduate and undergraduate students of historical geography will be held at the University of Hull on Wednesday 7th November 2012 between 9:30 and 5.

Organised by the Historical Geography Research Group, the day will include keynote lectures from Dr Liz Gagen and Professor Uma Kothari, workshops exploring research methods, a ‘postgraduate voices’ session and a brief talk by this year’s HGRG undergraduate dissertation prize winner. It will also be an excellent opportunity to meet other researchers in your field!

A small charge of £10 will be payable on the day of the event and will include lunch and refreshments through the day.

The final schedule will be finalised and circulated in the next couple of weeks but please keep the date free.

If you would like to receive a registration form please email Lucy Veale (Conference Officer) at: lucy.veale@nottingham.ac.uk
