Study Groups

Study groups of the Institute of Australian Geographers achieve the following objectives:

  1. promote the scholarly development and impact of a diverse range of geographical sub-disciplines and fields in Australia;
  2. foster collegial, productive, diverse and self-governing communities of practice within the IAG;
  3. host events and activities that realise high-quality and innovative research, education and engagement outcomes, foster career development and build collaborations with cognate disciplines and professions;
  4. advance the reputation of Australian geography nationally and internationally;
  5. attract and retaining financial IAG members by adding value to IAG membership; and
  6. contribute to the intellectual and logistical success of the IAG’s annual conference.

IAG Members are eligible to join up to three of the current Study Groups or create new ones!
