Welcome to the 50th Conference of Irish Geographers

The Geographical Society of Ireland and Department of Geography, Maynooth University are delighted to host the 50th Conference of Irish Geographers which will take place from Thursday 10th of May to Saturday 12th of May 2018.

The conference theme is The Earth as Our Home. Geographers study the Earth as our Home. What sort of Home have we made of our Earth? With climate, land-use change and environmental degradation we know that the Earth may become less hospitable for human flourishing. With inequality, racism, and displacement, many people no longer have a place to call home. For this 50th Conference of Irish Geographers, we invite contributions from geographers, and from other scholars, activists, and artists, as we consider the past, present and future condition of our earthly, our Irish, home.
