We take great pleasure in inviting submission of abstracts responding to
the call for papers below to be held at the 2019 Institute of Australian
Geographers Conference from 9-13 July in Hobart, Tasmania, and encourage
you to pass this invitation to others in your networks.

*Spatialities of educational engagement*

*Convenors: Elaine Stratford, Kitty Te Riele, Natalie Brown, Becky Shelley*

Educational opportunities are known to enrich people’s chances to enjoy
fulfilment over the lifecourse. As students, parents, educators, employers,
volunteers, policy-makers, and members of diverse publics, each of us
engages with early childhood, primary, secondary, and tertiary education.
Evidence from many studies around the world has established that active
engagement in education deepens the benefits derived from learning, and yet
the spatialities are not as well understood as they could be. We welcome
papers that “speak” to this point and consider, for example, educational
engagement and: learning environments; locational (dis)advantage and
spatial justice; participation, equity, and access;
urban/rural/regional/island settings; the spatial dimensions of identity;
and socio-spatial innovations in educational policy. Other relevant ideas
most welcome.

Abstracts are due with the conference organizers no later than 28 February
and may be lodged at https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts. If
you intend to submit an abstract, please also send your text to us so that
we are aware in advance that the submission has been made. We hope to
engage scholars, policy-makers, and practitioners, and look forward to
receiving your submission. If you have any questions about the conference
please contact Elaine.Stratford at utas.edu.au in the first instance.
