Relational Poverty Network at AAG Annual Meeting

Relational Poverty Network at AAG Annual Meeting

CONFERENCE: American Association of Geographers Annual Meeting 2016.

29 March - 2 April 2016 | San Francisco, USA

Starting from the idea that poverty is a keyword of politics and policy, relational poverty work troubles individualized framings of poverty and instead posits conceptual frameworks, research methodologies, and pedagogies that shift from thinking about 'the poor and poor others' to thinking about relationships of power and privilege.

Participants in the Relational Poverty Network sessions will focus on relational poverty research and activism which engage a radical rethinking of the root causes of poverty around the globe (in both poor and rich countries).  The sessions will engage poverty as a condensation point for revealing, researching and acting upon multiple simultaneous processes: racialization, criminalization, gendering, discrimination on basis of ability, citizenship, age and generation.

The sessions has been designed to generate cross-boundary conversations and collaborations (including across disciplines, geographic boundaries, theoretical and methodological approaches).

More Information can be found at the conference website and the website of RPN.
