Welcome to the website of the Digital Geographies Research Group (DGRG). We are an academic research group of the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG).

Digital technologies are changing the life worlds we research as well as the very way we ourselves undertake research and teaching. Therefore this group seeks to be a welcoming forum to discuss these changes for geographers from different epistemic and methodological traditions, and for those conducting theoretical as well as applied research work. The DGRG is a platform for exchanges within and between sub-disciplines, engaging with the diversity of geographies of and through the digital, and thereby nurtures and deepens discussion of geographical digital scholarship and practice.

Latest news  ‘Geographies of Gaming and VR’

Our third annual symposium is taking place on 3 July 2019, this year hosted by the University of Birmingham. This year’s theme is ‘Geographies of Gaming and VR‘ and it promises to be an engaging and ‘immersive’ experience.  There will be three keynotes, two paper streams and hands-on workshops as well as the ‘digital shorts’ that have proved so popular at previous symposia.  We will be live-streaming, the paper sessions and have a workshop session using Gary’s Mod for participants unable to attend in person.  Tickets are on sale via our Evenbrite page.
