Our call for papers for Non-Places, Digital Worlds and Geographical Imagination: Confronting, Constructing and Valorising Non-Places closes on Monday 24th November, so if you would like to contribute to this interdisciplinary event, please do get in touch with us!
Early career researchers and research students from any department in Newcastle University are able to take part, and can do so in a variety of formats [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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Carolyn Gibbeson (email@example.com).
This is a really great opportunity to present alongside our confirmed speakers, Luke Bennett (Sheffield Hallam), Prof. Alastair Bonnett (Social Geography), Dr. James Ash (Media and Cultural Studies) and Dr. Matthew Flintham (Leverhulme Artist-in-Residence), and to join wide ranging discussions confronting the theory and construction of non-places today, including the ways in which researchers might engage with, and produce work on, the abandoned and the lost, the shifting and the re-imagined, digital worlds, temporary structures, ‘blandscapes’, the invisible and the non-existent.
We’d be delighted to hear from you.
