The Geographic Perspectives on Women Specialty Group (GPOW) of the AAG is pleased to extend an invitation to sponsor sessions at the 2014 AAG, April 8-12 in Tampa, FL.
GPOW promotes geographic research and education on topics relating to women, gender, sexuality, and the socio-spatial production of difference and inequality more broadly. Sponsored sessions can encompass a broad range of geographic topics including (but not limited to) those focusing on women, gender, masculinities, femininities, sexuality, race, feminist theories and/or methodologies.
To put forward your session for GPOW sponsorship, please send your session abstract, list of presenters and titles to Jill Williams at JillMW@hawaii.edu.
