The Conference of Irish Geographers is the annual conference of the Geographical Society of Ireland and the Schools of Geography in Higher Education institutions around the island of Ireland. It is hosted on a rotating basis by different institutions and has been running since 1967. 

The Geographical Society of Ireland and Department of Geography, Maynooth University are delighted to host the 50th Conference of Irish Geographers [click the link to register and for more information] 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. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Maynooth in May 2018 for this very special conference. Please check this website for regular updates.
