NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GEOGRAPHICAL STUDIES 2019

Tracing spatialities and entanglements in networked worlds

15-16 November 2019

The National Conference on Geographical Studies (NCGS) 2019 serves as a venue for geographers, scholars and other practitioners to discuss a range of topics that are not only cutting-edge in the field of Geography but are also relevant to addressing the many social and environmental issues we face in an increasingly interconnected world. In NCGS 2019, we seek various and novel ways of tracing spatialities and entanglements, undertaking academic interventions and productive conversations using diverse theoretical and practical approaches. The NCGS 2019 serves as a node for conversation among geographers and scholars whose research attend to the processes, practices, discourses and materialities that set places and spaces in the Philippines and elsewhere into networked worlds.

We invite scholars and practitioners from all fields to share their research whether in paper, poster or video format. Research may be on, though not limited to, the following areas:
