HPGRG Undergraduate Dissertation Prize 2022

Deadline: 15 July 2022

The RGS-IBG History and Philosophy of Geography Research Group, in conjunction with SAGE Geography, is pleased to offer an undergraduate dissertation prize for the best dissertation in the histories and/or philosophies of geography. 

The winner will receive a prize of £50 and a year’s free subscription to their choice of Progress in Human Geography or Progress in Physical Geography and have their dissertation published on the HPGRG website. 

We welcome nominations addressing the history of the discipline, philosophy of the discipline, and/or geographical knowledge, discourses and practices across academic, public and/or private spheres. 

Please note that methodological innovation, as well as analytical and theoretical originality, will be taken into account by the assessing panel of HPGRG committee members. 

The dissertation should have been completed within the past two years and be written in English. We welcome nominations not only from the UK but also from other countries. Depending on the number and quality of submissions, the prize may not be awarded each year.

Please direct all questions and submit an electronic copy of the dissertation (PDF format) with your letter of recommendation and the candidate’s contact details to Dr Emily Hayes (details below). When possible, please provide a non-university email account for the candidate as communications will likely take place after their graduation.
