Call for Participation


6th International Critical Geography Conference 2011


“Crisis – Causes, Dimensions, Reactions”


Frankfurt, Germany, 16-20 August 2011


We are thrilled to announce that the 6th International Critical Geography Conference will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, 16-20 August 2011. Following very successful conferences at Vancouver (1997), Taegu (2000), Békéscsaba (2002), Mexico City (2005) and Mumbai (2007), we will be meeting at Goethe University Frankfurt to discuss “Crisis – causes, dimensions, reactions”. The focus will be on critical and emancipatory discussion aiming at radical explanation and change, organized in (but not confined to) eleven themes (see below). The format is designed to enhance debate beyond the confines of national traditions and academic hierarchies. While the main language will be English, there will be experiments with creative ways to deal with the multiplicity of languages spoken in theme 9 and some sessions in German in theme 11.
