There is a proposal in draft to create a Carceral Geography research group of the RGS-IBG. This would be free to join both for RGS-IBG members (including postgraduate members) and non-members, and its aims would be to provide a platform for further development of this research area, with dialogue between geographers interested in confinement (including diverse types of incarceration, detention, and custody) and scholars in other disciplines who are interested in geographical approaches to confinement (e.g. in criminology and prison sociology).
In order to propose to the RGS-IBG that such a group should exist, the application requires 40 names and membership numbers of RGS-IBG members (this can include postgraduate members, and members of the AAG who have linked RGS-IBG memberships). The names and numbers of these individuals would be submitted to the RGS-IBG as evidence of the community of scholars willing to join the group if created.
So, if you are a member/Fellow of the RGS-IBG, and you would be willing to join a proposed Carceral Geography research group of the RGS-IBG, please enter your details below.
If you are not a Fellow/member, but would still be happy to lend your support to the application (which means that we would list your name in the application as a supportive non-RGS member) then please also give your details below.
