Call for participation in Critical Development Studies online/face-to-face symposium.

15-16 Feb, 2016. 11:30-4:30pm (EST)/8:30-1:30 (W.A./the Philippines).

The Critical Development Study group of the IAG is organising an online/face-to-face symposium 15-16 Feb, 2016 [11:30-4:30pm (EST)], organised with nodes in different locations who will convene online.

The symposium will have break out sessions organised within the same node (so node members have some time working face to face) and some organized thematically (so people in different places join up electronically to discuss or work on some issue). We would then have some ‘plenary’ discussion where we are all together online.

We’d love to have some strong input from post-grads as well as people who aren’t based in Australia. We’re hoping the format will prove inclusive and cut down on carbon emissions. This is, however, our first effort at such a decentralized structure so please bear with us.

The symposium will have break-out sessions including sessions on: community engagement/activism, pedagogy, more-than-human development, cities as places of development and displacement, the sustainable development goals, and, surveillance and policing in the everyday. The sessions will be a mix of discussions around themes, workshops to collaboratively prepare outputs and sessions seeking input on draft papers. Some ‘Open Space’ sessions will be open to respond to issues raised within the symposium itself.

The workshop will run 11:30-4:30pm (EST)/8:30-1:30 (W.A./the Philippines), 15-16 Feb, 2016.
