COMMISSION ON GENDER AND GEOGRAPHY NEWSLETTER NO. 38 APRIL, 2007 Message from the Commission Chair
Dear Colleagues: I take this opportunity to introduce some of the activities of the IGU Commission on Gender and Geography in 2007 and 2008. Of course each of you is welcome to suggest more activities in the future:
2007 Symposia June 1-3, 2007 Sustainable Public Places: Feminist perspectives on appropriation, representations and planning of public spaces. To be held at the Department of Geography ,University of Zurich, Switzerland. Organizer: Elisabeth Buehler (firstname.lastname@example.org) (See below for further details.)
November 23-26, 2007 Transnational Lives: Feminist Perspectives onCitizenship, Home and Belonging. Ti be held at Department of Geography, National Taiwan University, Taiwan, Republic of China. Deadline for submitting abstracts: June, 31st 2007. Organizer: Nora Chiang
2008 Saraswati Raju has expressed interest in organizing a meeting in New Delhi, India towards the beginning of 2008. We will inform you once these plans become certain.
31st IGU Conference in Tunis, Tunisia . Projected dates are 12-15 August, 2008. We have begun to plan a pre-meeting in Tunis using some existing contacts of American scholars with Tunisian academics. These preliminary activities are carried out by Janice Monk.
I would also like to inform you that the Commission is now registered as an associate member of the European Platform of Women Scientists (EPWS). The aim of this platform is: to support the work of a whole range of existing national, European and international networks of women scientists from all disciplines (natural, medical and social sciences, engineering and technology, the humanities and arts).Furthermore, the Platform aims to make women scientists better understand the role they can play in the research policy debate and how to fully benefit from these opportunities by bundling their powers and forces. For more details please visit the website: www.epws.org
This group can be another means for our members to expand our international networks regarding gender research and studies.
I hope to see you at one of our events and please feel free to contact me if you have new ideas regarding the Commission's activities.
Tovi Fenster, Chair
