*AAG Session: Settler-Colonial Governance & The Ordering of Indigenous

*Call for Papers*

*Session organisers:* Janice Barry, University of Manitoba & Libby Porter,
RMIT University

Settler colonialism is understood as a historically, politically and
economically distinct relation of power in which generations of settlers
not only came to stay on Indigenous lands, but also sought to replace
Indigenous ways of knowing and governing those lands with a new colonial
order. This colonial ordering of space is achieved through a variety of
technologies of power, including the establishment of property regimes and
jurisdictional arrangements. While these technologies are very explicitly
geographical, they also link to other social science disciplines and
professions including law, public policy & administration, urban and
regional planning – to name just a few. This session invites papers that
interrogate *how *the historical and contemporary practices of
settler-colonial governance dispossess Indigenous peoples of their lands
and political authorities. The papers should express clear interests in the
ways in which settler-colonial geographies are produced and reproduced
through non-Indigenous institutions, laws, policies and procedures. It
particularly invites papers that appropriately centre Indigenous
experiences, theories, knowledges and critiques across a range of
geographic settings and contexts (urban, non-urban, etc). It also welcomes
perspectives from a wide range of settler-colonial contexts, including less
studied areas such as Africa, South America and the Middle East.

Please e-mail paper titles and 250-word abstracts to Janice Barry (
janice.barry at umanitoba.ca) and Libby Porter (libby.porter at rmit.edu.au) by
October 25, 2017. Potential panelists should also submit their abstracts
directly to AAG by October 25, 2017. Please note that papers that do not
sufficiently address the scope of the call *may* need to go to the pool of
‘unsessioned papers’ where they would be put appropriate sessions by the
conference organizers.
