Pushing Boundaries, June 2022


The GFGRG Committee would like to draw your attention to the following conference announcement: 

Call for Participation Pushing Boundaries Feminist Geography Conference

15th – 17th June 2022

The fourth international Feminist Geography Conference “Pushing Boundaries” will be held virtually and in-person at the University of Colorado at Boulder, June 15-17, 2022. The conferences main goals are to gather as feminist geographers, to share our work (however “in progress” it may be), and to discuss in community.

Pushing Boundaries acknowledges the ways physical, geopolitical, theoretical, imagined, emotional, biological and disciplinary boundaries inform and are informed by research and feminist praxis. In some cases, these boundaries are prohibitive and reproduce exclusions. In others, feminist geography pushes against, critiques and traverses such boundaries, leading to greater insight driven by the imperative for social justice and inclusion at all scales. 

The format of the conference also pushes against and extends geographical boundaries of time and space. The conference will be hosted both in-person at University of Colorado Boulder, USA, with time zone-friendly programming for India, the UK, Canada, and at multiple sites including Uganda and Ecuador. Members of the Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group sit on the organizing committee and are involved in hosting and facilitating online and  in-person events in the UK.

The conference (in-person and online) supports multiple formats and modes of engagement including flipped paper sessions, roundtable discussions, professional development workshops, mentoring and networking opportunities, ‘in person’ self-organized events, virtual coffee time and keynote panels. All sessions will be recorded and available live and for 30 days following the conference for registered participants to view.
