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, Feb 2019 ‘Geographies of Gaming and VR’

DGRG are pleased to announce the CfP for our third annual symposium, this year hosted by Birmingham University. With a theme of ‘Geographies of Gaming and VR’, it opens up virtual worlds and gaming to geographical research. It promises to be an engaging and ‘immersive’ experience… During this event we will be continuing to explore multi-modal methods of participation building on our previous symposia. In addition to traditional paper presentations, the ‘digital shorts’ that have proved so popular before and live-streaming, this year we are trialling online attendance for those unable to join us in person.
For more details please see our CfP and watch this space.
