The Gender and Geography Commission’s central theme is ‘A continuing agenda for gender: respecting difference, fostering dialogue’. The theme highlights the continued push that geographers must make to create more space for pluralism, by strengthening comparative work between North and South/East and West, and by increasing collaborative efforts among geographers across international and sub-disciplinary boundaries, as well as generations. We continue to foster dialogue on the intersection of gender with other identities that play a role in the experience of place, such as age, social class, ethnicity, sexuality, ability and others. ​ Please see

We are interested in papers, panels and posters that deal substantially  ​with​
genders, including but limited to these topics:

– Feminist and queer theories, politics, methods and approaches;


– Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) identities, communities and politics;​
– Heterosexualities, heteronormativities and homonormativities;
– Practices and spaces of desires, reproductions, intimacies, and relationships;
– Couples, families, single people and other forms of organizing ​kinship, ​
social-sexual lives; and
– Indigenous genders and sexualities.

AND their intersections with:

– Race, gender, class, dis/ability, religion;
– colonialism and imperialism;
– Nation-building;
– Migration and im/mobility;
– Policymaking;
– Labour activisms;
– Socio-economic inequalities;
– Health and social services; and
– Theory building

Please consider having the Gender and Geography Commission co-sponsor your IGU sessions.  ​ ​E
