Call for Papers "Access & Control: Resources and Technology in the Global South" Conference at Indiana University

The theme of the conference is "Access & Control: Resources and Technology in the Global South," and it will take place March 3-5, 2016. The deadline for submission of abstracts is January 22, 2016

The conference is specifically designed to not be exclusively focused on Latin America and the Caribbean. Our hope is to feature presentations on research about access and control of resources and technology from various geographical areas that fit into the Global South paradigm. To that end, we would greatly appreciate if you could relate that detail to potentially interested students.

A highlight of our conference is our ability to offer travel grants to students coming from outside of Indiana University to cover transportation costs (ranging $200-600).  We can also provide accommodations and a majority of meals, making participating in our conference an affordable way to present research to a wider, multidisciplinary audience. 

An opening address will be presented by Indiana University Geography Professor Dr. Majed Akhter, titled "Drones, dams, and uneven development: Historical and emerging techno-geographies of the Global South.” The conference keynote will be a talk by Dr. Marion Werner of the State University of New York, Buffalo, Geography Department, titled "Food Systems and Sovereignty in the Caribbean."
