Registration open, and new Confirmed Speakers: 2nd International Conference for Carceral Geography, 11-12 Dec 2017, University of Birmingham


Registration is now open for the 2nd International Conference for Carceral Geography, to be held at the University of Birmingham on 11th and 12th December 2017.

In addition to the previously confirmed speakers (Mary Bosworth, Ruth Wilson Gilmore, David Maguire and James Oleson), we are delighted to announce that Andrew Jefferson and Chris Philo will also be addressing the conference.

Paper and session proposals are warmly invited – see the CFP for more details on submission procedures and timelines.

Registration will remain open until 5th December. Intended delegates are welcome to register at any time, but prospective paper presenters and/or session organisers may prefer to wait until decisions on papers/sessions (and any travel/accommodation bursaries requested) have been communicated by the conference organisers (by 31 Oct 2017).

Although the conference is free to attend, delegates may opt to add day catering and/or the conference dinner at the point of registration. Please note that it is not possible to subsequently add these payable items to an existing registration, without first cancelling the initial registration and taking out a new one.
