Sponsor Groups:
Organizers: Richard White, Farhang Rouhani, Ophélie Véron
Chairs: Richard White


An anarchist praxis within geography continues to inspire and invite new imaginaries and praxis to flourish within the discipline. In recent years, anarchist geographers have revitalised approaches toward radical learning spaces (Rouhani, 2017, Springer et al, 2016); historical geographies (Ferretti 2015; Springer 2016), neoliberalism (Springer 2011), post-statist geographies (Barrera and Ince, 2016), practices of freedom (White et al, 2016); postcoloniality/decoloniality (Barker and Pickerill 2012), theories of resistance (Souza 2016); urbanism (Souza 2014), nonhuman animal oppression (White, 2017) and a reassessment of our discipline’s radical potential (Springer 2014, 2016), among others.

To continue to push anarchist geographies into ever new and critical directions, the first session will focus in particular on the following three areas: "Anarchist Geographies and Anti-racism/ intersectionality"; "Anarchist Geographies and Colonialism, postcolonialism, and decolonization" and "Anarchist Geographies and Critical Pedagogies, Learning, and Teaching in the University"
