Critical Geographies Miniconference

From the organizers:


We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 11th annual Critical Geographies mini-Conference, to be held Saturday, October 22nd at the University of Washington!

This year, the conference is being organized in collaboration with the Relational Poverty Network. Relational poverty analysis makes “poverty knowledge” differently by examining how poverty and exclusion are produced through dynamics of power, privilege, and positionality. We are particularly interested in the novel explanations and political insights that arise through relational analysis and methods, and welcome presentations on a variety of topics, by no means limited to poverty.

The theme for the 2016 conference is intersectionality, understood broadly.

We have organized this year’s conference in order to accept a greater number of submissions. Besides traditional paper sessions, we would also like to include student work on panels and in workshop sessions of “lighting talks”, where participants will offer a very brief presentation of their research interests or projects, allowing others to collaborate and provoke their thinking.

We invite the submission of abstracts and “working abstracts” for inclusion in the various presentation formats. The deadline for submission is September 23, and participants will be notified by October 7. More information can be found at

We ask that those who would like to attend without presenting also register so that we can plan accordingly.
