Event description
Where next for Digital Geographies forms the theme for 2021’s fifth DGRG Annual Symposium.

About this event

The digital has fundamentally transformed our lifeworlds. Our lives are increasingly dependent on and lived through digital worlds, not only shaping the everyday, but also how we conduct research and teaching. Across the globe, geographical interest in the digital has been growing and attracting a diverse range of scholars, from cultural geographers to GI Scientists. In recent years digital geography has matured as an area of activity with the founding of dedicated journals and research groups. Despite the increasing interest in the digital, however, there remains a risk that digital geographies is both all-encompassing and lacking in specificity. As this area of work matures, therefore, it is timely to reflect on both its research agendas and direction. Where next for Digital Geographies thus forms the theme for 2021’s fifth DGRG Annual Symposium.

The Symposium will feature keynote provocations from:

• Alex Hanna (UC Berkeley)

• Martin Zebracki (University of Leeds)

• Roopika Risam (Salem State University)

• Peta Mitchell (Queensland University of Technology)

Panel discussants will include:

• Andrew Dwyer (Durham University)

• Lizzie Richardson (Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space)

• Tabea Bork-Hueffer (Innsbruck University)
