I am running a panel at this week’s Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers Annual Conference in London on the topic of digital democracy. I’m really exciting about this double session panel for a number of reasons, not least because I’ve long been curious to hear other geographer’s perspectives on this contested object of digital democracy, and because of the range of different cases, topics, domains and framings being used across these 8 presentations. See full details of the sessions below:
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about digital participation and digital democracy lately, and hope to be able to do more writing on this topic and get some projects off the ground in 2019. I’m also hoping to connect with others with similar interests – thus this call for papers for the RGS annual conference in London this summer (28th-30th August). I’m also thrilled that the Digital Geographies Research Group of the RGS-IBG has agreed to sponsor this session at this year’s conference!
