Worlding geography is the decentring of geographical knowledge and theorising from multiple elsewheres. This worlding cannot happen without reworking the infrastructures of knowledge production.

This panel debates access to and gatekeeping in publishing spaces in geography. It is framed by the results of a recent study that demonstrates the existence of a slope of power, whereby the most influential roles in geographical knowledge production are the least diverse.

The panel will discuss the role of journals, handbooks and progress reports and how to open them up to the world in order to expand the community of geography.
