Loughborough Geography at the RGS Annual Meeting

Loughborough Geography was very well represented at the RGS-IBG Annual Meeting in London this week, with colleagues involved in convening 22 sessions, presenting 15 papers, acting as discussant in two sessions and as panellists in three sessions. In addition, even before the conference officially began, Marco Antonsich was involved in organising a pre-conference workshop in the main RGS-IBG lecture theatre on “Brexit: a geographical conversation”. This is the biggest annual gathering of UK Geographers and a major international event. There were 13 staff, two PDRAs and five PGRs organising and presenting at this year’s conference, reflecting the vibrancy of Loughborough Geography's research community. The main conference programme reveals 65 occasions where “Loughborough” is the affiliation of session convenors, chairs, presenters, panellists or discussants. This exceeds similar mentions by all except a handful of other UK Geography Departments.
