17th Annual Mini-Conference on Critical Geography

17th Annual Mini-Conference on Critical Geography

This two-day conference aims to provide an inclusive venue for the broad discussion of themes in critical geography. While the conference was borne of geography, we welcome all interdisciplinary work that examines the geographies of critical social theory and progressive political praxis. In recent years, papers and panels have been presented on a broad array of topics. See possible topics for presentation.

Conference Organization and Format

The conference will begin on Friday, November 5, 2010. The opening evening will feature a keynote address by Mona Domosh, the Joan P. and Edward J. Foley, Jr. Professor of Geography at Dartmouth College. We also invite conference participants who can arrive earlier in the day to attend a Friday afternoon guest lecture, co-sponsored by the UW-Milwaukee Center for 21st Century Studies and Department of Geography, by Professor Arun Saldanha of the Department of Geography at the University of Minnesota. The program on Saturday, November 6 will consist of paper sessions, panels, and round table discussions on topics in critical geography.
