RGS Conference 2009

I have just finished at the RGS conference which was hosted in the fantastic city of Manchester. I thought the line up this year was very good indeed and there were lots of interesting talks. The UCL talks from CASA comprised the QMRG session I organised on geodemographics and also a postgraduate forum / QMRG badged young researchers session. Some of these talks are online; James Cheshire, Dan Lewis, Oliver O’Brien, Muhammad Adnan and me.

Two other events of particular note at the conference were the launch of the International Encyclopedia of Human Geography and the “Mapping Manchester: Cartographic Stories of the City” exhibition organised by Martin Dodge and Chris Perkins (now known as Perkins in the popular press!).
