The AAG meeting really snuck up on me this year. I don’t remember if I said the same thing last year (probably not), but it’s hard to believe it’s here already. I still have a couple of changes to make on my presentation before I meet up with Joseph Palis and everybody on my panel on Wednesday afternoon.
Anyway, here’s where you’ll be able to find me this week:
Geo Slam II

Time: Tuesday, March 29, 2015, 4:40 PM – 6:20 PM

My paper is at 6 but make sure to come at 5:20 for Caitlin Grann; we presented together at AAG 2013 and it’ll be great to catch up with her.

Session Description: These sessions examine the geographical implications – social, political, cultural, and economic – that are often contained within the spaces and places of different forms of media. Geographies of media extend beyond their original form and text to include the broader industrial and political complex in which culture is an economic commodity set within the broader frame of a global and postmodern era. Geographies of media link between these realms and our daily lived experiences, from our cities to streets, from the living rooms to imaginations. These contexts invite inquiries into the production, distribution, exhibition, and consumption of all types of media. Geographies of media sessions are brought to you by Aether: The Journal of Media Geography (www.aetherjournal.org).
Otherwise, follow me on twitter at @sonicgeography and I’ll try my best to keep it updated with any big changes. But per usual, it’s impossible to predict what I’ll get pulled into here. It’s been a while, San Francisco, and you look wonderful.
