The annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG) in New York City will take place from the 25th of February to the 1st of March 2022 virtually. It will be our first chance to present and discuss our progress with a broader range of colleagues, since the project officially started in July 2021. As we are currently working on the operationalisation of our theoretical framework and the preparation for fieldwork, we are looking forward to this opportunity and we are excited to listen to many inspiring presentations. More than 6000 attendees are expected to participate.
Pearl Puwurayire from our team will give a presentation in the panel “Managing informal Cites” talking about “Deciphering the drivers of Informal Water Vendors through the lenses of historical debates in literature“.
The Hybrid Urbanisms team is also organizing a panel on “Hybridity and delivery configurations of infrastructures in the Global South” with the following four presentations:
