Organized by Society for Radical Geography, Spatial Theory, and Everyday Life and the CRG Feminist of Color Geographies Working Group

Please join us March 4th for our fourth annual symposium, “Spatializing Sovereignty.” This symposium seeks explorations of how sovereignty is spatialized at all levels, from the power of mapping, to the affects and “erotics of sovereignty” (Rifkin 2012), to the praxis of sovereign polities. How do variously defined geographies determine the limitations and possibilities of sovereignty as concept, as process, and as discursive and political strategy? This year the symposium features a diverse range of scholars and artists giving academic presentations, artist talks, and film screenings engaging questions of sovereignty at various scales. We will have opening remarks by Johnella LaRose, co-founder of Indian People Organizing for Change, and two keynote lectures:
2:00pm: Gelare Khoshgozaran, writer and multi-disciplinary artist

5:00pm: Electric Lights, Tourist Sights: Gendering Dispossession and Settler Colonial Infrastructure at the Niagara Falls
Dr. Mishuana Goeman, American Indian Studies and Gender Studies, UCLA
