RGS-IBG, 1 Kensington Gore, London
Following investment by RGS-IBG in ‘Opening the Archives’, HPGRG and HGRG are pleased to announce a workshop event designed for academic staff wishing to learn more about the collections and archives of the RGS-IBG on Friday 30 January 2009.
The workshop is intended to encourage further use of the RGS-IBG collections and archives, which include manuscript archives, prints and photographs, film, artefacts, maps and other holdings. It is envisaged the workshop will act as a stimulus for future research by academic staff, graduate students and undergraduates. As well as material for historians of geographical knowledge, the collections will support possible research across the entire range of geographical activities.
Interested individuals are requested to REGISTER with Catherine Souch by Monday 12 January 2009. If expressions of interest exceed capacity (twenty), efforts will be made to ensure equitable representation of HE institutions at the event, with the request that participants feed back to interested colleagues and students. A number of modest bursaries will be provided by RGS-IBG to support attendance by those with the highest travel costs.
