Call for conference organisers for the 5th International Conference for Carceral Geography

The Carceral Geography Working Group (CGWG) of the RGS-IBG invites Expressions of Interest from potential organising committees for the 5th International Conference for Carceral Geography.

The committee of the CGWG invite Expressions of Interest from colleagues within the network to host the 5th International Conference for Carceral Geography in 2022. Whilst the conference should reflect the research focus of the CGWG, hosts may determine their own conference theme and have flexibility in the format of the conference proceedings. Host can expect to be supported by the CGWG committee or members of the CGWG Advisory Board, if required.

Expressions of Interest should, in the first instance, be sent to Jennifer Turner, Chair of the CGWG, at jennifer.turner@uni-oldenburg.de by 30 April 2021. A selection of potential organising committees would then be invited to complete a Full Proposal by the deadline of 31 July 2021.

The deadline is pre-emptive of both the organising time required for an international conference and the deadline for relevant RGS grant applications to provide financial support for the conference.

More details and proposal templates can be found here. Please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer via the means above to ask questions or discuss initial ideas.
