Dear All,

We are keen to hear from anyone interested in: 'Care as incarceration: The Changing Landscapes of Institutional Treatment of Disabled People'. 

Please consider submitting an abstract, or getting in touch with either myself or Janice to discuss your proposed contribution for the RGS-IBG Annual International Conference, Cardiff, 29 -31 August 2018

This session is being sponsored by the RGS-IBG Carceral Geography Working Group (GGWG).

Co-organisers: Jayne Jeffries and Janice McLaughlin, Newcastle University.

**Deadline for abstracts: Friday 2nd February 2018** 

The incarceration of disabled people in institutions of 'care' and treatment has a long troubled history, which geography is only now beginning to fully engage with. While such incarceration is assumed to be of the past - for example the spaces of the asylum (Philo, 1997, Parr, 2008), the sanatoria (Shaw and Reeves, 2009) and disabled children's orthopaedic hospitals, contemporary investigation instead is pointing to ongoing landscapes of incarceration - for example the micro-politics of everyday social exclusion and segregation within spaces of mainstream education (Holt et al., 2012, Shah and Greer, 2017). This session will explore how in the past and present institutions of care for disabled people have created continued and changing dynamics of incarceration. In doing so the session will expand the field of carceral geography, as well as addressing the diverse epistemologies that are used to engage with disabled people's lives.

Contributions may focus on:
*	The hidden and contested histories of institutionalised and incarcerated spaces of care;
*	The role of cultural heritage in illuminating the social, medical and historical pasts of disability, health and illness in the UK and beyond;
*	The changing role of social policy and human rights;
*	The importance of the disability movement to practices of resistance and activism;
*	The temporalities associated with spaces of institutionalised and incarcerated care, including the changing meaning of home and the social exclusion associated with long-term residential status; 
*	The practices of medical professionals and staff, including medical treatment, surgery and consent;
*	The embodied and affective dimensions to incarceration;
*	Methodological engagements with historical and contemporary accounts of disability, health and illness using the arts and humanities (literary texts, archival work, performance to name a few).

Session Format: We are happy to receive interactive proposals and welcome a mixture of paper formats and opportunity for open discussion. 

**Please send abstracts (up to 250 words) or queries regarding your proposed contribution to [log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask] by Friday 2nd Feb 2018** 

Best wishes,

Jayne and Janice
