Session: Your Scholarship Has a Home: Highlighting Queer Geographies at the 2021 AAG
Virtual Paper Session

Sponsored by the Queer and Trans Geographies Specialty Group, this session aims to bring into conversation diverse scholarship that engages with Queer Geographies. In a year of unprecedented challenges, increased labor for scholars, and political unrest, we acknowledge that fewer conference sessions are available due to overstretched commitments to our communities, ourselves, and our families. This session will provide space to bring scholars together who wish to present queer geographical work at the AAG but lack a session home. Such a collection of papers will emphasize the breadth and impact that Queer Geographies have in geographical sub-disciplines including, but not limited to, historical geography, health geographies, environmental justice, urban geography, social geography, and many more. This session aims to highlight the extraordinary impact of Queer Geographies to push critical geographical disciplines for greater inclusivity of sexuality and gender, as well as multidimensional understandings of power across space and place.
