CFP: Institute of Australian Geographers Conference session on Legal Geography Futures

University of New England, Armidale, 6-9 July, 2020. 

Tayanah O’Donnell (ANU and Jo Gillespie (USyd) as part of the Legal Geography Study Group.

Scholarship linking geography and regulatory settings is now well established and blossoming.  Australian legal geographers have been at the forefront of leading the world in untangling the geography/law nexus. In this session we are looking to explore the myriad ways in which geographers engage with the law.  From everyday encounters in urban contexts to control of remote, rural locations, each place tells a regulatory story over time and space. In this session we invite contributors to celebrate the legal geography journey.  From empirical case studies to conceptual framings, we are interested in scholarship which explicitly, and sometimes implicitly, embraces the geography-law dynamic.
