Description

Feminist Geographies in/during Troubled Times: Dialogues, Interventions and Praxis

August 4-6, 2018

Feminist Geography Conference

University of Montreal, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

(Pre-IGU & CAG Conference)

The Canadian Women and Geography (CWAG) specialty group of the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG) and the International Geographical Union (IGU) Commission on Gender and Geography are pleased to be hosting a two-day feminist geography conference to be held at the University of Montréal in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Taking place before the IGU Regional Conference and the Annual Meeting of the CAG in Québec City, the pre-conference will promote intergenerational and intersectional dialogues among feminist scholars, researchers and activists around the theme of practicing feminist geography in times that are troubled by recent ecological and societal changes such as the rise of white supremacy and homophobia, neoliberal politics, authoritarianism and climate change. We seek to create a space to examine solidarities and connections among feminist and other fields of critical geography such as queer and anti-racist geographies, political ecology, and non-human geographies. The pre-conference also aims to encourage discussion across linguistic differences by creating space for feminist geographers working in non-Anglo-American contexts.

The conference will be in French or English.

Conference Themes

How do feminist geographers understand and address troubled times at all scales from the body to the globe and in contexts such as the home, workplace, and public spaces? How do we address various and messy tensions and contradictions of feminist geographies in and during troubled times? How are tensions contested? What does it mean for various bodies to move through spaces of contradiction and tension? What kinds of tools do we have to dismantle these tensions for opening up spaces for marginalized subjectivities? How can we learn to listen to each other and move forward during these troubled times? What kinds of actions that we can take collectively?

Panels, papers and workshops will address these tensions and contradictions to open up spaces for conversation and dialogue that include but not limited to:

Place and space for/by feminist and other critical geographers in/during troubled times
Knowledges, methodologies and tools in/during troubled times
Talking across and through diverse feminist geography traditions and generations
Connecting feminist geographies and geographers in/during troubled times
Feminist next steps for better times (what action and praxis?)
Art(istic) and performative responses to troubled times
