Call for papers- RGS-IBG 2018: Temporality and Change: Non Representational Geographies and Beyond
Sponsored by the History and Philosophy of Geography Research Group (HPGRG)
Building on a plethora of analytical frames and concepts that have conceived of, or attempted to understand, temporality and change (May and Thrift, 2011), this session invites contributors to consider how temporality and change are empirically, theoretically and/or methodologically grasped within the contemporary landscape of geographical knowledge. In asking these questions, the session is interested in the role of Non-Representational Theories as an approach that continues to influence social and cultural thought (Vannini 2015). As such, we are interested in work that is shaped by a concern with movement, foregrounding the dynamics of change, and highlighting the emergent intricacies of everyday life (Anderson and Harrison, 2010, Thrift, 1996). We welcome broad interpretations of time and temporality and contributions that consider Non-representational theories in relation to other ways of thinking.
Topics in this session might include, but are not limited to:
Anderson, B. Harrison, P (2010). The promise of non-representational theories, Surrey: Ashgate.
May, J. and Thrift, N. eds., 2003. Timespace: geographies of temporality. London: Routledge.
Thrift, N (1996). Spatial Formations, California: Sage.
Vannini, P (2015). Non-representational methodologies: Re-envisioning research, London: Routledge.
Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to both:
Amy C. Barron, The University of Manchester
Andrew S. Maclaren, The University of Aberdeen
In submissions please include paper title, abstract, authors name(s), affiliation, contact email address (and in the case of multiple authors clearly state who will be presenting the paper)
The deadline for submissions is Monday the 12th of February.
We are also planning on organising a workshop session on practicing non-representational theories at the RGS-IBG. Watch this space for details, but please do email us if you would be interested in such a session.
