SCGRG Reading Weekend 2013

The SCGRG is holding a weekend event on ‘reading and writing social and cultural geography’ on 1-3 November 2013.  The event is open to all, but is primarily aimed at postgraduate researchers.  The weekend will mainly consist of discussions around a series of articles from the journal Social & Cultural Geography on key concepts and debates.  Routledge/Taylor & Francis will provide 14 days free access to journal content (and their whole geography collection) for registered participants prior to the event.  There will also be panels/roundtables on publishing and early-career Q&As.  We hope you will join us to socialise, meet new people and hopefully have some fruitful discussions. A limited number of postgraduate bursaries are available. Further information can be found on the event’s webpage.
