Final Call for Papers

Association of American Geographers (AAG) Annual Conference, New York, 24-28 Feb 2012

Geographies of the Life Course

We are seeking to organize a number of sessions that individually and collectively examine the spatiality of different phases of the life course and that foster dialogue and debate about life histories and life paths.  The broad aims of the session/s are to enable a detailed sharing of methodological and ethical issues arising from quantitative and qualitative engagement with time in the study of the life course, between geographers working on childhood, adulthood and older age.   Besides work on discrete phases of the lifecourse this session is also interested in research issues and methods involving the structures and sequences of events and transitions throughout an individual’s life, stressing intergenerationality (Vanderbeck, 2007) and intersectionality (Valentine, 2007).  We welcome papers that examine a variety of traditional and non-traditional methodological approaches to study the life course (from narrative to GIS), as well as papers that deal with ethical conundrums of life course research, including participation, privacy and authenticity.

If you are interested in participating in this session, please submit a 250 word abstract to Nancy Worth, Susan Lucas and/or Irene Hardill at N.Worth@leeds.ac.uk, susan.lucas@temple.edu or Irene.hardill@northumbria.ac.uk. no later than September 26th.  Please provide us with the names of all authors and the AAG PIN for the corresponding author.
