Call for Postgraduate Rep(s) for the Carceral Geography Working Group

Doctoral and Masters research students are invited to join the Carceral Geography Working Group committee!

It is intended that at the first AGM of the Carceral Geography Working Group of the RGS-IBG, one or more Postgraduate Representatives, who will become members of the CGWG committee, will be elected.

The role of PG Rep(s), who should themselves be postgraduate students, will be to liaise with the postgraduate community in Carceral Geography, and to assist in CGWG business, particularly the organisation of events and networking opportunities for PG members.

Candidates for PG Rep will need to be proposed and seconded by members of the CGWG. Candidates must be members of the CGWG but do not necessarily need to be members of the RGS-IBG. (See for information about how to join).

The AGM will be held at the 2nd International Conference for Carceral Geography, 11-12 Dec 2017 at the University of Birmingham. The AGM itself will be on 12 Dec. Candidates, proposers and seconders do not need to be in attendance at the conference, or at the AGM, but must have submitted their nominations to the Chair, in writing (email is acceptable), by the commencement of the AGM at 9am GMT on 12 Dec. Nominations must include the names of the nominee, proposer and seconder.

Candidates who seek proposers or seconders are invited to use the mail list, to which all CGWG members are subscribed. Alternatively, since the AGM will take place on the second day of the conference, it may be possible for conference attendees to make arrangements during the first day, during which there will be a lunchtime session for Early Career Researchers.
