The nature of the geo-graphic is changing. New spatial media, ubiquitous geospatial data, and seemingly limitless distributed computational capacity convoke new technicians and novel techniques by which our worlds are written and drawn upon. What are the implications of the marginalization of the discipline of geography among actors displacing entrenched modes of description, both graphic and textual? How must we reconsider the basic geographic practices of writing and drawing the world?

We propose that thinking and seeing geographically hinge on the philosophical and technical entanglement of writing, drawing, and marking. This session considers geographic pedagogy as it relates to forms of responsibility that accompany drawing and writing. We explore the proposition that geo-graphic pedagogies are about the mattering of concerns, the mapping of traces, and the possibilities of inscription and intervention.
