  • AAG GPOW Business Meeting Time/Location, Session Sponsorship, Book Event Update and Conference Links

    Dear GPOW members,

    The GPOW business meeting at the AAG in Boston will be on Friday, from 11:50am-1:10pm in the Commonwealth Room in the Sheraton (our request for a change to a lunchtime spot instead of the evening came through this morning).

    If you have not already requested GPOW sponsorship for your session (helps everyone find GPOW sessions in the App/program) and would like to do so, please contact Amy Schubert ( and Amy Piedalue ( before February 20th.

    We are planning to host our GPOW Book Event and will post details about the time/date as soon as we can confirm them. In the meantime, we are still happy to accept book nominations until March 15th (please email Denise Goerisch: - books published between February 2016 and March 2017). If you have contacts in Boston, we welcome suggestions for venues as we are still working on finding a suitable space.

I do not normally post very much on listservs for personal reasons, so I want to apologize if I have been quieter than most. I just want to say on a personal note that I deeply appreciate everyone's efforts and work that I know they are doing in all of the spaces where they are. Please contact me if you need additional support, links to resources or want to connect as we prepare for AAG, and as some consider shifting sessions to the CAG meeting in May/June among many other options being discussed on various listservs right now. The CAG2017 announcement is here: and it is important to note that the Executive Order not only makes it difficult for many to enter the US, but it also means that many are fearful of leaving the US and not being able to return. I also wanted to note the updated and extended call for this Feminist Geography Conference (details and announcements here:
