Cyborg Spaces and Monstrous Places: A Panel Session at the AAGs

I'm very excited about the panel session Maureen and I have organized for the AAG meetings in Washington DC, especially following my recent article, "Cyborg Geographies", in Gender, Place & Culture.
"[The] subjects are cyborg, nature is coyote, and the geography is elsewhere."
-- Donna Haraway
Donna Haraway's contribution to the theorization of feminist, post-structural and radical geographies has been immense, and critical scholars working across the spectrum have drawn on her work as part of larger projects rethinking the epistemological and ontological foundations of modern geography. The purpose of this session is to bring together a diverse field of geographers who are currently engaging with Haraway's work. We hope to foster this conference space in order to share research and to grapple with the possibilities and limitations of Harawayian thought as it has and continues to open up new spaces across the discipline -- both theoretically and practically. To that end we welcome panelists that engage with any aspect of Haraway's work, and encourage participation from a wide variety of geographic sub-fields, including, but not limited to: anti-essentialist feminist research praxis, cyborg politics, relational ontologies, hybrid epistemologies, impure landscapes, god-trickery, inappropriate/d others, companion species, and human/techno-bio-nature-science relationships.
