Call for Papers – Non-Places, Digital Worlds and Geographical Imagination: Confronting, Constructing and Valorising Non-Places

Friday 12th December 2014, 12.30-5pm
Space 7 Culture Lab, Newcastle University

Bringing together researchers from diverse subject areas, this interdisciplinary half-day event will explore a number of theories and constructions of ‘non-place’, ranging from the abandoned and the lost, to the temporal and digitally mediated, to the nonexistent and the re-imagined.

Featuring talks from Luke Bennett (Sheffield Hallam), Prof. Alastair Bonnett (Social Geography), Dr. James Ash (Media and Cultural Studies) and Dr. Matthew Flintham (Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence), with further speakers to be confirmed shortly, we now welcome abstracts from early career researchers and research students at Newcastle University who would like to take part [e.g. by giving a paper, running an activity, performing or presenting work in progress for no more then 20 minutes].

Abstracts should be no more than 200 words and should be sent to Emma Coffield (e.j.coffield@newcastle.ac.uk) or Carolyn Gibbeson (c.gibbeson@newcastle.ac.uk) by Monday 24th November.
