Critical Geography (Mini-)Conference on ‘the minor’ — October 2015, University of Kentucky

I am excited to see that the University of Kentucky organizers have chosen “the minor” as the theme for this year’s Critical Geography Mini-Conference. Their Call for Proposals cites Cindi Katz’s 1996 Society and Space article “Towards minor theory” as the key point of reference. Katz will be the keynote speaker. The deadline for submission of proposals is August 31 [blog update June 17, 2015].

The timing of this announcement is notable for me. My students in Urban Geography will read Katz’s article alongside excerpts from Roberto Bolaño’s The Savage Detectives for the last week of the semester (their decision from among several options). And one of my presentations for the upcoming Association of American Geographers meeting in Chicago examines several examples of memory-work in Mexico City as “minor politics.” (The other presentation is part of a session described in a previous post.)
