2018 DGWG Symposium on 6 July

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

 

 

Walk and talk in the Peak District on 7 July

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.
