This panel seeks to discuss, debate, suggest, and explore theoretical and methodological possibilities for ongoing and future work in digital geographies. Each year, the Digital Geographies Specialty Group convenes a keynote panel at the AAG of leading scholars on a shared topic of interest, organized by the group's student board members. This year, we will be discussing “Digital Geographies of Difference,” exploring a variety of non-hegemonic perspectives on the ways that digital technologies, methodologies, and epistemologies make space and place, and consider the complex social and political potentials that diverse actors and communities embed in and enact through digital technology.
