Call for Papers: Nordic Geographers Meeting (NGM2017)

(Stockholm, Sweden: June 18th - 21st 2017) Austerities, economic crises and neoliberalisms: experiences of children, young people and families

Convenors: John Horton (University of Northampton, UK), Helena Pimlott-Wilson (Loughborough University, UK), Sarah Marie Hall (University of Manchester, UK)

Abstract: This paper session will explore ways in which diverse, challenging geographies of 'austerity', 'economic crisis' and 'neoliberalism' have affected the lives of children, young people and families in international contexts over the last decade. There is mounting evidence that these social, political and economic contexts are substantially transforming contemporary geographies of childhood, youth and family and constituting new or intensified forms of inequality. In this context, the session will bring together new empirical and conceptual papers in three thematic areas.

First, we invite submissions of research papers - including qualitative, quantitative and multi-methods projects - evidencing experiences of children, young people and families in diverse contexts of austerity, economic crisis and neoliberalism. The session will explore the geographically-differentiated, regionally-distinctive and personally-provoking nature of these experiences, via case studies from different states, regions, localities, cities and communities. We particularly seek papers which consider intersections between local/family geographies of austerity, economic crisis and neoliberalism and wider spatial/social inequalities (e.g. around age, gender, ethnicity, disability, social class) or contemporary geographical issues (e.g. mobilities, migrations, debt, finance, use of public space).

Second, we invite papers which provide new conceptual and methodological reflections relating to the session themes. We particularly seek papers which critically consider discourses of 'austerity', 'economic crisis' and 'neoliberalism' in relation to contemporary ideas of 'childhood', 'youth' and 'family', or which showcase new, interdisciplinary methodological tools for exploring and analysing new geographies and inequalities in this context.

Third, the session we invite papers exploring the involvement of children, young people and families in practices which contest, or offer alternatives to, geographies of 'austerity', 'economic crisis' and 'neoliberalism'.

Please submit abstracts (no longer than 300 words) by December 15th 2016 to:

John Horton (john.horton at northampton.ac.uk<mailto:john.horton at northampton.ac.uk>)

Helena Pimlott-Wilson (H.Pimlott-wilson at lboro.ac.uk<mailto:H.Pimlott-wilson at lboro.ac.uk>)
