The editorial board of Kaleidoscope, the Institute of Advanced Study’s online postgraduate journal, is delighted to announce the publication of our Issue 5.1. Unusually, this is a special edition of proceedings from two conferences for postgraduates and early career researchers.
The first of these was the Fifth Annual Rhizomes conference held by The School of Languages and Comparative Cultural Studies in The University of Queensland, Australia in February 2010, entitled “Diaspora: Language and Place”. The annual Rhizomes Postgraduate Conference provides an opportunity for postgraduates and early career researchers to present research, exchange ideas, and build networks in a friendly and relaxed academic environment while engaging in interdisciplinary dialogue.
The second was the RGS-IBG Postgraduate Mid-term Conference, hosted by Durham University’s Geography Department in 2011. The RGS-IBG Postgraduate Forum Midterm Conference offers a welcoming, supportive and affirmative environment for postgraduates to share emerging and ongoing geographical research.
The current Call for Papers for the next edition of Kaleidoscope is now open.
