We are pleased to invite the submission of abstracts for the following session at the 2019 RGS-IBG International Conference: Recent Developments in Transport Geography
This session is specifically focused at post-PhD Early Career Researchers conducting cutting-edge research in transport geography or related fields. It is intended to provide a relaxed and stimulating forum for ECRs to discuss and exchange ideas, and to foster potential future research collaborations. For the purposes of this session an Early Career Researcher is defined as someone who will have had their PhD viva within the last 8 years on 1 September 2019, and who is not in an established/permanent academic post. We will consider papers on any topic relating to transport geography, but would particularly welcome submissions which bring a transport perspective to the overall conference theme of ‘Geographies of trouble / Geographies of hope’.
The session is sponsored by the Transport Geography Research Group, a group of academic and professional Transport Geographers with global membership. We have a very wide range of interests within our membership, and we hope the session will reflect this by including both quantitative and qualitative approaches to the geography of transport from a range of spatial contexts.
The conference will take place at RGS-IBG in London from Tuesday 27 to Friday 30 August 2019. More information about the conference can be found at https://www.rgs.org/research/annual-international-conference/
Abstracts of up to 250 words should be sent by email to the session convenors Prof Graham Parkhurst (Graham.Parkhurst@uwe.ac.uk) and Dr Simon Blainey (S.P.Blainey@soton.ac.uk) by 1700 GMT on Friday 8 February 2019.
