Call for Sessions Open for IAG 2019 Hobart, Tasmania

Dear geographers and friends of geography,

The local organising committee of the Institute of Australian Geographers Conference, Hobart 9-13 July, 2019 is pleased to open the call for conference sessions.

The theme of the conference is Geographies of Emergence, Divergence, and Convergence.

Hashtag is #IAG2019Hobart.
The Conference will be held at the Wrest Point Conference Centre in Sandy Bay. The conference starts with a reception and plenary late afternoon on Tuesday 9 July, with full days from Wednesday to Friday. Fieldtrips will be available on Saturday, with pre-conference activities on Monday and Tuesday. The conference dinner is scheduled for the evening of Thursday. Information will be updated on the conference website: conference website: http://www.iagc2019.com

Session proposals, including panels (e.g. author meets critics), can be submitted via the conference website: http://www.iagc2019.com by selecting the Call for Sessions tab. The Call for Session button, which will take you to an online submission form.

It would be great if you could be mindful of the conference theme when thinking about sessions. The conference website already has some signposts for you to consider. In the near future, a short piece in Geographical Research will expand on the conference theme.

Anyone wishing to attend the conference can propose a session, which will usually encompass 3 or 4 20 minute papers (15 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion), or a 60-80 minute panel. Sessions that attract a large number of papers will likely become a stream of multiple sessions. Study groups are encouraged to coordinate call for sessions coming from within the group to minimise duplication and maximise likely interest in session proposals.

Depending on the number of sessions proposed, potential overlap between session proposals, and the constraints of the timetable and venue, we may have to do a little curating.

 We have already confirmed some exciting international and local keynotes, including Carolyn Finney<http://carolynfinney.com/>, Greg Lehman<https://www.findanexpert.unimelb.edu.au/display/person812259>, Janelle Knox-Hayes,<https://dusp.mit.edu/faculty/janelle-knox-hayes> and Jamie Kirkpatrick<http://www.utas.edu.au/profiles/staff/geography-spatial/jamie-kirkpatrick>. More to follow.

We are looking forwards to you joining us in Hobart in 2019.
