A short post today about a forthcoming RSA event at the University of Manchester. The Regional Studies Association is running a special mini-conference aimed at Early Career researchers - those people who still smile a lot and have no grey hairs.

  • Where? University of Manchester, UK - at this location
  • When? Tuesday 2nd November, 2010
  • What? Regions in a Shifting Global Landscape
  • Why? To bring together like-minded researchers (particularly the younger ones)
  • Who? Organised by Cecilia Wong, Stephen Hincks and Brian Webb
  • Who else? Plenary speakers are Tassilo Herrschel (Westminster),and Gordon Dabinett (Sheffield) with others to be confirmed...
