The HGRG welcomes members from beyond the boundaries of academic geography—you do not have to be a member of the RGS-IBG to join. The HGRG differs from most other RGS-IBG Research Groups in that it charges a membership subscription for the additional services that it offers. We have different membership rates for Ordinary Members and Postgraduate Members. HGRG membership subs are essential for HGRG to continue to provide the range of support to HGRG members and we are grateful for the collegiate generosity of members in this regard. Information on RGS-IBG Research Groups can be found here.
You will receive the HGRG Research Series, the HGRG Newsletter, and be added to the e-circulation list. Your subs will support the grants that HGRG provide to the HGRG community and you will be eligible to apply for these. You will get a reduced rate on back issues of the HGRG Research Series.
