Call for Submissions

Feminist political geography is a continually evolving subdiscipline that engages with a variety of theoretical traditions and topical foci. This paper session aims to provide an opportunity to reflect on emerging trends in the subdiscipline by providing a forum for junior scholars (e.g., graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, early career faculty) to share their empirical work and research findings in a productive and supportive environment. We aim for a lively, constructive and productive session that reflects the energy and dynamism of our sub-field and that brings new ideas, arguments and engagements into conversation. Particularly welcome are contributions from scholars affiliated with institutions based in Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and Africa, as well as empirical analyses rooted in or between these places.
