IGU Gender and Geography Commission Call for Organised Sessions, Papers and Posters, Quebec 6-10 August 2018

The Gender and Geography Commission of the IGU invites Calls for Papers and ​​
Session Sponsorship requests for paper presentations, panels and
posters ​ ​
for the upcoming Regional IGU 2018 in Quebec City (August 6 – 10, 2018) See attached, and

The Gender and Geography Commission’s central theme is ‘A continuing agenda for gender: respecting difference, fostering dialogue’. The theme highlights the continued push that geographers must make to create more space for pluralism, by strengthening comparative work between North and South/East and West, and by increasing collaborative efforts among geographers across international and sub-disciplinary boundaries, as well as generations. We continue to foster dialogue on the intersection of gender with other identities that play a role in the experience of place, such as age, social class, ethnicity, sexuality, ability and others. ​ Please see igugender

We are interested in papers, panels and posters that deal substantially  ​with​
genders, including but limited to these topics:

– Feminist and queer theories, politics, methods and approaches;

– Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) identities, communities and politics;​
– Heterosexualities, heteronormativities and homonormativities;
– Practices and spaces of desires, reproductions, intimacies, and relationships;
– Couples, families, single people and other forms of organizing ​kinship, ​
social-sexual lives; and
– Indigenous genders and sexualities.

AND their intersections with:

– Race, gender, class, dis/ability, religion;
– colonialism and imperialism;
– Nation-building;
– Migration and im/mobility;
– Policymaking;
– Labour activisms;
– Socio-economic inequalities;
– Health and social services; and
– Theory building

Please consider having the Gender and Geography Commission co-sponsor your IGU sessions.  ​ ​E
mail Lynda Johnston ( for requests, inquiries, questions and proposals. ​

Young and Early Career GEO in Beijing 2016

Dear Young and Early Career Colleagues,

IGU’s inaugural Young and Early Career (YEC) Taskforce meets for the first time at this year’s IGC in Beijing. Please join us for our first meeting-cum-launch session and Masterclass event on 22 August at 2:30pm (please check congress booklet for venue details upon registration in Beijing). YEC’s first ever Masterclass, will provide a unique opportunity for early career colleagues to get academic survival tips from senior colleagues including how to find  funding and proposal writing. We hope to organise more of such activities and also provide a unique platform for networking and collaboration with all existing early career groups already working as part of the various IGU commissions. If you plan to be in Beijing this August, please do join us to learn more!


We are also looking for members who are interested to become more involved in YEC. The meeting in Beijing provides a great opportunity to learn about YEC and its mission as well as meet other young and early career geographers. If you would like to participate at the IGC Beijing events or join the YEC team, please send an email to Dr. Komali Yenneti at or Dr. Kamalini Ramdas at


Thank you and warm regards,

YEC Taskforce
