This August, the Society’s academic publications will be actively involved in the vibrant conversations due to take place at the Fourth Global Conference on Economic Geography, which will be held at the University of Oxford (19-23 August 2015).
The Society’s academic journal, Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, is sponsoring a plenary conversation on Saturday 22 August 2015 at 11.50 in the University of Oxford’s South Writing School.
The session, ‘Global Encounter, Pluralism and Transformation in Economic Geography’, chaired by Transactions Editor, Gavin Bridge (Durham University), is a conversation between three leading researchers (Britta Klagge, University of Bonn, Jane Pollard, Newcastle University, and Henry Yeung, National University of Singapore) about what it means to practice economic geography as a global enterprise.
There will also be an ‘Author meets critics’ session at the conference for Stefan Ouma’s recently published RGS-IBG Book Series book, Assembling Export Markets: The Making and Unmaking of Global Food Connections in West Africa, on Saturday 22 August at 14.20 in Room 10.
The session will be chaired by the Series’ former Human Geography Editor, Neil Coe (National University of Singapore) with Alex Hughes (Newcastle University), Gale Raj-Reichert (University of Manchester), Christian Berndt (University of Zurich), Maria Wilson (University of Edinburgh) and, of course the author, Stefan Ouma (University of Frankfurt) participating.
In celebration of this year’s Global Conference on Economic Geography, Transactions has published a virtual issue on Financial Geography, guest edited by Manuel Aalbers (KU Leuven/University of Leuven). All 16 papers in the virtual issue are free to access from the Transactions Wiley Online Library.
