Dear colleagues,
Requesting a wider circulation in your networks –

CFP Institute of Australian Geographers Conference 2019 ‘Geographies of emergence, divergence and convergence’
9-13 July 2019, Hobart, Tasmania  www.iagc2019.com<http://www.iagc2019.com/>

Session Title: Animal urban geographies of the Global South: Making spaces for, with and by non-humans

Convenor: Yamini Narayanan (Deakin University), Ashraful Alam (University of Otago)

Feminist geographical and urban studies have paid much attention to the vitalist agencies of non-humans (e.g., animals, plants and objects). With more-than-human and relational insights, non-humans are being acknowledged to generate more emancipatory political spaces where both human and non-human participate. This session asks how animals and plants can be seen as enablers of ‘subaltern’ political agencies to create inclusive spaces for themselves, but also human communities in marginalised and informal spaces? What kinds of intersections of different animals and plants with racialised, casteised and/or gendered humans (among others) be unearthed, and what can these tell us about new forms of urban identity politics? The session invites papers that include case studies and methodological approaches to explore the human-non-human interfaces in cities primarily in the global South, but also other regions.

Please submit your abstracts (150 words) online via the conference website  https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts and email the session convenors y.narayanan at deakin.edu.au<mailto:y.narayanan at deakin.edu.au>and ash.alam at otago.ac.nz<mailto:ash.alam at otago.ac.nz> .The deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 February 2019.

With best wishes
