CALL FOR ABSTRACTS OPEN FOR IAG 2019, HOBART
Dear geographers and friends of geography,
We are pleased to invite abstracts for papers and/or presentations for the Institute of Australian Geographers Conference 2019 – at Wrest Point in Hobart.
The theme of the conference is geographies of emergence, divergence and convergence. We have some amazing international and local keynote speakers, including Jennifer Wolch (University of California, Berkeley), Janelle Knox-Hayes (MIT), Greg Lehman (University of Melbourne), Sangeetha Chandra-Shekeran (University of Melbourne), and Jamie Kirkpatrick (University of Tasmania) – among others.
Session proposals have been submitted for the conference by the Institute of Australian Geographers study groups. The breadth of the sessions attests to the diverse interests in our discipline and the sessions are well-aligned to the conference theme. We invite you to submit the abstract for your paper/presentation to the session that best suits the theme of your paper.
If you are submitting an abstract which is not aligned to a session, please choose the ‘open/unaligned’ option.
The local organising committee for the conference will review all submitted abstracts after the closing date, in consultation with the IAG study group convenors (where relevant), to assess their fit with the conference and nominated session.
Paper presentations are limited to 15 minute presentations and 5 minutes for questions as the default, but there will be some sessions that have a call for papers where there are fewer papers and more time allocated for presentations (subject to time and venue availability). Some sessions may be managed according to interest, gauged by the number of abstract submissions, and the conference program will be adjusted accordingly.
We look forward to receiving your abstract and to seeing you in Hobart!
Jason Byrne and Aidan Davison, on behalf of the Local Organising Committee.
