Event description

Description

Outline: The theme for the 2018 DGWG Symposium will be "Justice and the Digital”. We will explore ideas including digital (in-)visibilities, voice/voicelessness online, data ethics and data justice, digital divides in access and affordability, uneven digital literacies, justice and inclusion in digitally mediated/smart cities, using digital forms of protest to address social and environmental (in-)justice, and many more. The event will bring together those working in all sub-disciplines of geography, interested in digital geographies. The day will feature exciting panels with high-profile researchers and practitioners as well as three participatory strands of talks, “digital shorts” from members at all career stages, and discussions. The strands are:

  1. Citizenship, Protest and the Digital
  2. Data, Justice and the Smart City
  3. Justice and Global Digital Inequalities

There will be time for networking and socialising on the day of the Symposium and, on the day after, on an optional “walk and talk” leisurely hiking excursion in the nearby Peak District National Park.

Registration is £25 (standard) and £15 (postgraduate and un-waged). Bursaries are available (see below).

Digital Shorts: In order to represent the breadth of research taking in justice and digital geographies, to ensure everyone attending can get their work 'out there', and to facilitate networking, participants are invited to give a 2-minute “digital short”. These were very popular at our last symposium. Digital shorts are invited that sit within each of the three conference strands: Citizenship, Protest and the Digital; Data, Justice and the Smart City and Justice and Global Digital Inequalities. They will be delivered to colleagues in your area of expertise in the parallel sessions. If you wish to present, when booking your ticket please indicate on the Eventbrite form which parallel session you wish to attend and what your provisional title will be. Closer to the time, further details on sending in your digital short will be emailed to you via the address provided upon booking.

For full information, including the schedule, speakers, digital shorts format, and details on the 'walk and talk', please see the dedicated page on the DGWG website.
