Call for Proposals: Nature’s New Urban Worlds session at AAG 2019

Naturvation researchers Harriet Bulkeley and Laura Tozer have a released a call for proposals for a session at the American Association of Geographers Conference in Washington D.C. in April 2019.

The session, 'Nature’s New Urban Worlds: towards a critical geographical engagement', will engage with the recent surge of interest in the ways in which nature can be deployed as a means through which to realise urban sustainability and, in turn, tackle global challenges. Through new rationalities for urban development, knowledge practices, and forms of intervention, nature is being used in the forging of new urban worlds. Yet our understanding of how and with what consequences forms of governing, knowing and enacting urban futures through, with and for nature remains relatively unexplored.

The call welcomes the submission of papers that seek to develop a critical geographical engagement with nature's new urban worlds. Abstracts of 250 words should be sent to laura.m.tozer@durham.ac.uk by September 21st.
