Dear all

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

     Isolation: Disconnection, solitude and seclusion in a
                            connected world

     14th - 16th December, Hobart and Port Arthur, Tasmania, 2006

In an era of increased connectivity, joined-up modes of governance
articulated across spatial boundaries, the growth of real-time
information flows and capital it may seem odd to assert the relevance of
isolation and seclusion, yet the paradox of connection has been a growing 
sense of isolation for key social groups and spaces bypassed by these
transformations and even actively excluded by various technical, spatial
social and political processes. 

These processes have sewn together social lives and economies via
networks in which distance has become irrelevant. However, at the same
time as these transformations have been taking place a series of social,
spatial and political processes have run counter to these transitions.
Examples of these patters abound. Affluent young travellers take on the
indentity of experience-seeking authentic travellers, affluent households 
colonise urban spaces behined gates and in fortresses designed to promote 
security as well as spatial secessiona and social seclusion.

The aim of this conference is to generate debate on a wide range of
topics linked by the common theme of isolation and its changing role and
impact on contemporary life. Located in an island landscape that speaks
to a history of disconnection, Tasmania provides an exemplary setting for 
hosting this event.
