CFP: Domesticating Geopolitics

Second Call for Papers:
Domesticating geopolitics

RGS-IBG Annual International Conference, Exeter, UK, 2-4 September 2015

Convened by Dr. Tara Woodyer, Dr. Diana Martin (University of Portsmouth); Dr. Sean Carter, Dr. Philip Kirby (University of Exeter)

Co-sponsored by the Political Geography Research Group and the Social and Cultural Geography Research Group

From the outset, critical geopolitics has emphasised approaches that question spatial distinctions between foreign/domestic politics and political distinctions between formal/popular geopolitics. More recently, feminist contributions to critical geopolitical debates have re-articulated the necessity of including the ‘everyday’ and the ‘ordinary’ into our accounts of the geopolitical, in part to work towards the dissolution of clear-cut distinctions between public and private, and towards the increasing realisation that different scales are not separate but intertwined.

CFP: Panel on research methods for migrant/transnational kids & families

12th IMISCOE Conference: Rights, Democracy and Migration
Geneva, 25-27 June 2015

Second and final Call for Papers for a research panel proposal on: ‘The methodological challenges of conducting research with children of migrants (including teenagers and young adults) within (transnational) families’ 

 An increasing number of studies seek to consider the experiences and perspectives of migrants and their children (including teenagers and young adults) within the relational and intergenerational context of the transnational family. These studies present a range of research challenges in relation to accessing and recruiting participants; negotiating with ‘gatekeepers’ (i.e. parents or guardians); securing informed consent from both adults and children; and managing age, gender and other power dynamics within families. Researchers in these areas need to employ a reflexive practice in relation to procedural, ethical and methodological issues.  Continue reading CFP: Panel on research methods for migrant/transnational kids & families
