Call for papers
Developing Theoretical Approaches in Labour Geography
Department of Geography, University of Liverpool 11-12th June 2009

Following the success of the ‘Theoretical Approaches to Labour Geography’ 
conference held in Oslo, May 2008 in collaboration with IGU Commission on the 
dynamics of economic spaces; the University of Liverpool hopes to build upon 
the issues discussed by further developing understandings of the ‘missing links’ 
in labour geography and how these can be (and are being) challenged, whilst 
further developing the interaction of academics and members of the labour 
movement thus enabling theoretical approaches to be situated in a real life 
context.

Academics at any stage of their research are invited and we also welcome 
postgraduate students to attend and present papers.
 
We invite papers that address the theorising of labour geographies in different 
empirical and geographical contexts. These could engage with the following 
themes: 

•	The relations between labour and the geographies of neo-liberalisation
•	Environmental politics and the labour movement
•	Labour internationalism
•	Theorising workers' identity and agency
•	Promoting union organising at the grassroots
•	Relationships between academia and the labour movement
•	Community Unionism
•	Unionising the informal sector
•	International migration and labour market change
•	Ethical production and consumption
•	Labour responses to CSR
•	Organising in the third sector

Confirmed keynote speakers
We are pleased to be able to confirm the following keynote speakers: Jane 
Wills, Professor of Human Geography, Queen Mary, University of London whose 
research epitomises the labour geography discourse and Paul Mason, BBC 
Newsnight's Economics Editor and author of 'Live Working, Die Fighting', a book 
on the history of the global labour movement.

Abstracts
One page abstracts submitted by 31st March 2009. Please submit to Rebecca

Written papers submitted in advance will be circulated on the conference 
website and considered for publication in a journal special issue.
