UO Geography hosts 2019 Critical Geographies mini-conference
Friday and Saturday, October 18-19, 2019
We are very pleased to announce that the University of Oregon is hosting the 14th Annual Critical Geographies Mini-Conference (formerly known as the Cascadia Critical Geographies Mini-Conference) with the support of the Department of Geography and the College of Arts and Sciences. Consistent with the long-standing goals of this conference, we seek to create a fun, engaging, and friendly atmosphere that embraces an unsettling of the “traditional” conference structure.
Part of the Conference will be held in the Many Nations Longhouse on the University of Oregon campus, in recognition of the original stewards of the land where the University of Oregon campus is located now.
There is no fee to attend or participate in the conference, and we will cover expenses for participating graduate students from the region (as much as funds allow).
The themes for this year’s conference are
- Critical Race/Subaltern Geographies,
- Digital Geographies,
- Critical Physical Geographies, and
- The intersections between these themes
