NEWSLETTER 40 MAY, 2008
This is my last message to you as the Chair of the Gender and Geography Commission as in August, 2008 I finish the four-year term. I am happy to inform you that Robyn Longhurst from the University of Waikato, New Zealand has agreed to be nominated as the next candidate for Chair.for 2008-2012.
I enjoyed very much these four years which were very active and productive and I am glad we managed to keep our reputation as one of the most active Commissions in the IGU. From 2004 we had six meetings (Barcelona, Hamilton, Brisbane, Zurich, Taipei and Tunis) and their success and high academic quality is expressed in the fact that they have produced three special issues in Journals such as: Belgeo (2007/3) on: "Feminist Geographies around the World" (in English with abstracts in French, German, or Dutch)edited by Maria Dolors García Ramon and Janice Monk, Geographica Helvetica (1, 2009) on “Public Spaces and Social Diversity (in English)edited by Elisabeth Buehler and the planned issue of the Taiwanese journal, The Journal of Geographical Scienceon "Transnational Lives" to be edited by Nora Chiang (in English). This collection of publications in places other then the US and the UK expresses the importance of the Commission's activities in exposing the multiple forms of knowledge in feminist and gender geography to both the Anglo and non-Anglo audience and in widening the involvement of geographers from non-English speaking countries with the Commission's activities. Of course this could not happen without the strong support and dedication of the Commission members, especially the organizers of the meetings. (For those of you who are interested to read the detailed report about the Commission's activities in 2004-2008 you can find it on the Commission's website: www2.fmg.uva.nl/igugender/) .
In addition, I am also pleased to inform you that our Commission has one of the largest listserves with 350 people on it and a regular twice a year newsletter. Again, a very productive and constant way of communication thanks to Jan Monk. I 'd like to use this opportunity to thank the Commission's Executive Committee who finished their term in August 2008 and to welcome the proposed new members. Thanks to Janet Momsen(US) – the Commission's Treasurer since its establishment. Welcome to Holly Hapke (US) the new Commission's Treasurer. Thanks to Brenda Yeoh from Singapore who finished two terms and welcome to Shirlena Huang from Singapore. Thanks to Diana Lam from Argentina who finished two terms and welcome to Susanna Veleda da Silva from Brazil. Thanks to Audrey Kobayashi from Canada who finished two terms and welcome to Mireia Baylinefrom Spain. I'd like to thank the continuing members: Mariama Awumbila (Ghana), Elisabeth Buehler (Switzerland), Shahnaz Huq-Hussain (Bangladesh), Janet Townsend (UK) and Sorina Voiculescu (Romania).
And lastly a big welcome to Robyn Longhurst as Chair and a successful and enjoyable period for all of us. I hope to meet all of you in our future meetings in Tunis (2008), Hungary-Romania (2009) and Tel Aviv (2010)

IGU Commission on Gender and Geography Symposium ‘Transnational Lives: Feminist Perspectives on Citizenship, Home and Belonging’, Taipei, Taiwan, November 23-26, 2007
‘Transnational Lives: Feminist Perspectives on Citizenship, Home and Belonging’ was the title of the Commission’s symposium organized by Nora Chiang and her students and staff of the Department of Geography, National Taiwan University in Taipei. About 75 participants from 16 different countries (Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Mainland China, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and USA) met for the three-day symposium. The twenty-four papers were organized under four themes: 1) Citizenship, rights and identity formation; 2) Homemaking, everyday life and transnational families; 3) Mobility aspirations, decisions and adjustments; and 4) Cosmopolitanism, belonging and transnational subjectivity.
The program offered cohesion as well as diversity. Experiences of female migrants in a globalising world were a constant factor in all presentations. At the same time the presentations highlighted a variety of themes, female migrant groups, national or local contexts and methodologies: from national policies to food, from global cities to remote rural areas, from poor domestic workers to transnational academics and exchange students, from in-depth interviews to logistic regression analysis.
One of the traditions in the Commission on Gender and Geography is the inclusion of in-field meetings as part of the academic program, where academics and local feminist activists discuss and exchange experiences. In this case we visited two of the six landmarks of Women’s Culture in Taipei: Fembooks, a feminist bookshop and publisher, and the Homemakers’ Union and Foundation, founded as a Homemakers’ Union, but nowadays an active group of women with a wide array of schooling, cultural, neighbourhood and environmentalist activities. Other destinations of the field trip were the Zhon Shan Building, designed by the noted female architect Hsiu Tze-lan, the Yangmingshan and Beitou hot spring region, the Shann Garden, a former Japanese officers’ club and Kamikaze reception site, and an old tea factory with a history going back to 1890 in Xiamen, China.
The organizers also initiated a ‘Gender and Geography Week’ in the Department of Geography which included the Symposium, special lectures, posters and a display of international publications. The complete department was buzzing with gender activity: in the elevators, stairs and corridors announcements, posters and other expressions of the ‘Gender and Geography Week’ could be found everywhere: a very warm welcome indeed! Nora Chiang and the Department of Geography did a great job: this meeting was scientifically inspiring, well organised and with a warm atmosphere

Gender Commission Collaborates with IGU Commission on Dynamics of Economic Spaces The Commission of Gender and Geography appreciates the cooperation of the IGU Commission on Dynamics of Economics Spaces in arranging to include two sessions focusing on gender themes in its forthcoming conference on “Worlds of New Work: Multi-scalar Dynamics of New Economic Spaces” to be held in Barcelona, August 5-8.
Nine papers on gender themes are included in the program with participants from India, Japan, the Philippines, Spain, UK, USA. Topics range from international labor migration of single Japanese women to women’s entrepreneurship in the UK, to gendered livelihoods in the global fish-food industry of India. We look forward to a report following the meeting and to further collaboration across Commissions.

NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD A workshop on gender and development geography focusing on questions related to “mainstreaming” of gender perspectives was held on April 25-26, 2008 at the Wannsee-Forum in Berlin (http://www.wanseeforum.de). The goals were to assess the importance of place/space of gender research in geographic development studies, ask whether gender research is serving or stimulating development practices; to examine the relationships between feminist geographic research and geographic development studies as well as with gender studies in other disciplines, and whether gender has to be researched as a cross-cutting task.
