This is a call for papers for a session at the next conference of the American Association of Geographers annual meeting in Washington DC 3-7 April next year on feminist digital geographies, organised by Agnieszka Leszczynski (Western University) and me. It’s sponsored by both the Digital Geographies and the Geographic Perspectives on Women Speciality Groups of the AAG.
In the context of a flurry of activities coalescing around digital geographies, we invite papers that consider the “enduring contours and new directions” of feminist theory, politics, and praxis for geographies concerned with the digital (Elwood and Leszczynski, 2018). We broadly welcome interventions that proceed from, utilize, and advance feminist epistemologies, methodologies, theory, critical practice, and activism.
We are open to submissions offering empirical, theoretical, critical, and methodological contributions across a range of topics, including but not limited to:
- big data
- digitally-mediated cities
- artificial intelligence and algorithms
- social media
- feminist/digital/spatial theory
- progressive alternatives and activism
- feminist histories and genealogies
Please submit abstracts of no more than 200 words by October 15th to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Please include a title, your name, affiliation and email address in the abstract. We will respond to authors with confirmation by November 1st.
