Are you a PhD or masters student or early career scholar bringing together creative practice and research on topics of place, space, landscape, environment, mobility or the city?

GeoHumanities names an increasingly common intersection of the practice and scholarship of the arts and humanities with geographical scholarship and practice on topics such as environment, landscape, place, identity and mobility. A growing amount of such work is being undertaken through practice-based or practice-led research, often but not always based in Geography departments. This day-long workshop provides an opportunity for those working in these ways on geographical topics from a range of backgrounds to meet and discuss the challenges and benefits of these ways of working.

Through practical workshops, panels and informal discussion it will focus in particular on:

1)    Discussing the form of GeoHumanities practice-based/led work

2)    Offering the chance to share work with peers

3)    Discussions of the form of a practice based PhD thesis and the examination process

4)   Sharing challenges and issues around practice-based/led research

5)   Concerns around CV building and career development for practice-based scholars

6)   Developing an early career network of early career GeoHumanities practitioners

The event is free to attend but places are limited, there are also some travel bursaries to apply for for those coming from outside London.

This event is organised in collaboration with Royal Holloway Centre for the GeoHumanities, the AHRC Creating Earth Futures project, and the AHRC TECHNE doctoral Training Centre.
