The Society of South African Geographers held its Biennial Academic
Conference in East London in the final week of June this year. The
week combined the annual Student Conference, a PhD and Post-doctoral
Colloquium, an Academic Writing Workshop for emerging scholars, as
well as the traditional academic conference which shared and
celebrated contemporary geographical research. The week was a great
success, hosted by the University of Fort Hare's Geography
Department. Staff and students from the Department of Environmental
and Geographical Science participated in all parts of this week. A
great chance to share current research and to network with
colleagues nationally, the next SSAG student conference will be
hosted by UNISA in September 2015 and the following Academic
Conference will mark the SSAG's Centenary and be hosted by the
University of Stellenbosch in September 2016.
