Call for contributions: DGRG Work in Progress YouTube Series

The Digital Geographies Research Group (DGRG) of the RGS-IBG invites interested researchers, academics, students, or practitioners from around the world to contribute to our Work in Progress YouTube series.

This series consists of digital shorts (videos between 2 and 5 minutes in length) exploring topics across the full breadth of research connecting geography with the digital. Your video could discuss:

  • Recent research findings
  • An emerging research idea or interest
  • A new or upcoming research output, publication, creative work etc.
  • Research methodology
  • Approaches to teaching
  • Uses of digital technologies within academia

View existing videos here to get a flavour of the wide range of topics and approaches showcased in the series. All videos in the series are accurately subtitled.

This format has been deliberately designed to require limited preparation, so is ideal for postgraduates, early career researchers, those with caring responsibilities, or other commitments. In the spirit of being inclusive, staying in touch and trying to support each other, we want to use our channel to promote the fascinating and diverse work being done in digital geographies throughout the academic calendar. We see this as an opportunity to foster community, research development, membership growth and international outreach.

If you’re interested in participating, please submit an abstract to Daisy Curtis (, Jack Lowe ( and Maxwell Mutanda ( by 21st January 2022 for the Spring 2022 showcase period.
