CALL FOR PAPERS | 2023 International Conference on Geographical Studies

Event Details

For the 2023 iteration of the International Conference on Geographical Studies, the focus on the performative aspect in and of geography necessitates the creation of productive (and performed) spaces to hear stories of geography-informed practices in research, pedagogy, community-based work and various advocacies.

This year’s PERFORMATIVE GEOGRAPHIES theme spotlights multiple performative acts and practices. Whether this is about care-ful and caring geographies of older persons and differently-abled individuals, or cartographic interventions in a marginalized community, we would like to hear STORIES of how these spaces are produced, destroyed, re-created and subjected to multiple transformations. Stories can also be about the performative ‘doing’ of identities, storying violence in agroecological landscapes and bungkalan, re-spatialising performative activism for climate justice, participating in creative strategies of communities in relation to disaster preparedness, displacement of the heteronormative alignment of sex and gender (following Judith Butler), or documenting the affective practice of digitizing and bringing to life the old and forgotten maps.

Send us your narratives that describe, question, analyze, and un-think performances and performativities in research, practice, and in everyday life advocacies, in the form of a 250-word abstract on or before 6 November 2023 through this link:
