Kia Ora Colleagues,

Please join in this fantastic IAG-NZGS session on the Counter-Cities provocation (Poster attached)!

If you are working in topics (but not limited to) such as multi-species care/justice, refugee mobilities, urban greening, urban underground, viral/microbe mobilites, alternative food practices, disability, children, gender, and sexuality and how the city can be imagined/reported differently by thinking through these issues, this session is for you!

Please encourage PhD students and ECRs in your network.

Alternative Urban Imaginaries 2:

Storying Radically Interdependent Counter-Cities

(sponsored by Urban Geography and Cultural Geography Study Group)



Ashraful Alam, Donna Houston, Michele Lobo



Cities play a crucial role in imagining hopeful post-pandemic and planetary futures if openness, radical interdependencies and justice that include and go beyond the human are considered. Imagining these futures are necessary, particularly when western colonial and capitalist (il)logics and promises have failed to deliver diverse, equitable and just cities. How can we come together to design and imagine cities otherwise? Urban geographers are at the forefront of accepting the urgent challenges of the present and seeking alternative imaginaries so that cities are places of radiant and plural becomings. This session is an invitation to conceptualise and think with the Counter-City. We call for storying that values collaboration, interdependencies and experimentation through ideas, performances and case studies that explore city living and collective urban futures. The agenda is to rewrite cities of the Global North/Global South beyond conventional, expert and elitist frames. These ethical-political inquiries might use a representational/more-than representational or human/more-than-human lens to focus on the urban/digital commons, urban infrastructures and undergrounds, social difference (gender, disability, ethnicity, race, sexuality, religion etc), animal/multispecies care/justice, food security/alternative food practices, viral/microbe mobilities, and so forth.



The format of the 2021 conference is a hybrid online conference combined with in-person events. We welcome you to join us in your preferred format.
