How To Participate in the Conference

Pre-Recorded Paper or Panel Sessions (Flipped Conference)

We welcome proposals for individual papers, sessions or panels that question, cross, or reject boundaries, including disciplinary borders, geopolitical divisions, and academic/ activist divides. 

 

A flipped conference paper is a presentation that can be based on fully formed academic papers, papers in progress, or a sharing of initial thoughts. This format both allows participants across multiple time zones to view the presentation ahead of time and provides opportunities to improve accessibility options for viewers (e.g. closed captioning, Google translation). Flipping the sessions will allow for more discussion and questions at the in-person conference, while also incorporating feedback and questions from remote audiences. A flipped paper or panel session can contain up to 5 pre-recorded presentations (of up to 15 minutes in length) which will be uploaded to the conference website in advance of the conference for participants to view. Each session will include a chair-led discussion with the authors of the flipped papers and include time for questions, answers and discussion with audience members.  

 

Topics could include, but are not limited to:

  • Climate change 

  • Critical race and feminist geographies

  • Extractivism and dispossession 

  • Disciplinary conventions and agendas
