Shifting Landscapes

Hosted by the Department of Geography and Environment

LSE campus

*Please note that this event has been postponed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.* 

The Department of Geography and Environment is pleased to announce a student-led conference that will feature research by PhD students (and early-career researchers) on the rapid shifts that societies are facing.

Changing social issues and literal shifts in environmental and spatial landscapes demand novel, collaborative and cross-disciplinary approaches to these challenges. The conference aims to bring together researchers on the changes we will be facing and how to best approach them. We aim to highlight the contributions of new researchers who propose ways of tackling these emerging issues, whether theoretical, experimental or applied. We are committed to creating a dialogue between disciplines and welcome submissions from a wide range of social sciences.

This conference will take place at LSE’s vibrant campus in central London. The first day will entail a keynote speech as well as workshops, networking and other events to provide plenty of opportunity for attendees to socialise and gain conference experience in an inclusive, welcoming environment. The following full day will feature talks and panel discussions in the style of a traditional academic conference.

For call for abstracts and more information, please see the conference website:

The deadline for abstract submissions is 4pm (GMT) 3 January 2020.
