COMMISSION ON GENDER AND GEOGRAPHY NEWSLETTER 39 NOVEMBER, 2007
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR Dear All,
Since this is the last newsletter for 2007 let me look back and forth on the Commission's activities this year. It was a very productive year for our Commission with two excellent meetings in two distinct parts of the world; In Zurich and In Taipei. In each of the meetings we not only discussed the direct themes of the meetings (Sustainable Public Spaces in Zurich and Transnational Lives in Taipei) but also managed to learn a lot about women's activities in these cities and regions and altogether they added a lot to our understanding of the extent to which gendered geographies develop, work and change in different cultural, political and social setups. I am happy to inform you that several publications will come out of these meetings so that a wider academic audience can benefit from the knowledge presented there. It’s a good opportunity to thank again Elisabeth Bühler and Nora Chiang for their excellent work in organizing the meetings in Zurich and Taipei.
Looking forward to the year 2008, we focus our efforts on the main IGU conference in Tunis on 12-15, August, 2008. This will most probably be the only meeting of the Commission next year. The conference website has already been setup (www.igc-tunis2008.com). The major issue concerning this conference is the very high registration fees (650 Euro for early bird) that doesn't allow many people to take part. This issue is now being discussed by the IGU President and Vice Presidents and the Tunisian local organizers and we are waiting to hear the results of their talks. As we decided in Brisbane 2006 and again in Taipei 2007, the Commission will not have a pre-meeting but will have its sessions in the main conference. Those of you who do submit abstracts to the Commission's sessions must select in the 'abstract submission form' the category 'Commissions' and than select our Commission and please send a copy of the abstract to me as well so that we can do a follow up (firstname.lastname@example.org) .
I'd like to inform you that Ruth Fincher has agreed to submit her candidacy for the elections of the IGU Vice Presidents that will take part at the Tunis conference. There are 7 vacancies and we hope that Ruth will be one of those elected.
Last but not least, I'd like to thank Jan Monk for taking the initiation and scanning all the Commission's newsletters . It is possible to find them in the Commission's website. This is a good opportunity to thank Joos Droogleever Fortuijn our past Chair for her great job in keeping our website up to date.
I wish to send you seasonal greetings and a Happy New Year,
Tovi Fenster – Chair.
SUCCESSFUL COMMISSION SYMPOSIUM ON “SUSTAINABLE PUBLIC PLACES,” UNIVERSITY OF ZURICH Between May 31- June 3 a highly successful symposium, organized for the Commission by Elisabeth Bühler addressed “Sustainable Public Places: Feminist Perspectives in Appropriation, Representations, and Planning of Public Spaces.” Over 50 participants, together with visiting students participated in paper sessions, a walking tour of Zurich, and a day-long field trip to examine historical gender relations in the Gotthard region of the Alps. Organized into eight sessions, speakers addressed diverse locations, especially in western Europe but also in eastern Europe, South Africa and Kenya, Argentina, the Caribbean, Indonesia and the US. In addition to the presentation of research findings on specific places, presentations took up methodological and theoretical concerns, emphasized challenging and resisting divisions between the “public” and “private” in space, and considered the gender effects of and implications for planning of public spaces.
The Alps field trip, led by geographer Verena Meier-Krukerand historian, Elisabeth Joris, offered not only spectacular scenes (and beautiful sunshine) in the Gotthard Region of the Alps, but opportunities to learn from local history displays of gender roles and relations in the region, particularly in the building of the Gotthard Tunnel, where work by women (including immigrant women) in providing local services such as
boarding houses, laundries, and bakeries , was an important and overlooked part of the history of the this major engineering work.
A detailed SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) of the symposium is available on the Commission’s web site (http:www2.fmg.uva.nl/igu/gender). It highlights the value of such a well-organized, cohesive, and international event, the high quality of the papers, the variety of junior and senior participation, and the friendly, relaxed and cooperative atmosphere. Suggestions for improvements, (insofar as these are feasible) include more time for discussion in a packed program, efforts to secure more funding, especially for junior participants and those from low-income countries (always a challenge), and the dilemma of choosing between designing a conference that has all plenary sessions or organizing parallel sessions.
A selection of the papers is forthcoming in Geographica Helvetica (1, 2009), the Swiss journal of geography, in a special issue devoted to “Public spaces in pluralistic societies." (no 1, 2009), one a “state of the art” paper and four empirical studies selected by the conference organizer and journal editors. Discussions are underway to develop a book-length publication including other contributions.
NOVEMBER CONFERENCE ON “TRANSNATIONAL LIVES: FEMINIST PERSPECTIVES ON CITIZENSHIP, HOME, AND BELONGING Under the leadership of Nora (Lan Hung) Chiang, the Commission is holding a symposium in Taipei, Novermber 23-26. The more than 20 presentations will emphasize the Asia-Pacific region, but also include presentations on and by scholars from other parts of the world. Local field trips include meetings with women’s organizations and a day-long scenic tour. A full report on the symposium will be included in the Spring, 2008 newsletter.
“FEMINIST GEOGRAPHIES AROUND THE WORLD”
A special issue of Belgeo (2007/3) features papers that address the varying ways in which feminist geography has developed in an array of countries reflecting the contextualization of knowledge. Guest edited by Maria Dolors Garcia Ramon and Janice Monk, the papers were originally given at the symposium organized at the Autonomous University of Barcelona in February, 2006 which had as its goal an examination of and challenge to Anglo-American hegemony in the discipline. In addition to the editors’ introduction, which also draws on comments by multi-national round table panel at the symposium, papers included in the special issue address developments in feminist/gender studies in geography in Anglophone Sub-Saharan Africa (Mariama Awumbila), Argentina/Brazil (Diana Lan and Susana Veleda da Silva), France (Dominique Creton), the German-language geographies of Austria, Germany and Switzerland (ElisabethBühler and Karen Baechli), Hungary (Judit Timar), Singapore (Shirlena Huang and Brenda Yeoh), Spain (Fabia Diaz, Maria Dolors Garcia-Ramon and Anna Ortiz Guitart) the UK (Jo Little) and US (Altha Cravey). Full details on how to purchase copies of the journal will be sent in a separate email message.

NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Elisabeth Bühler gave an invited presentation “Gender in Geography: An Essential Basis of Analysis” at the 60th Anniversary of the Geographical Institute Jovan Cvijic of the Serbian Academy of Sciences in Belgrade, September 24-25. She introduced important concepts in the field and illustrated them with results of her recent research in Switzerland on home, labour market, and welfare state. Elisabeth was invited by the Institute’s President, Marina Todovoric who had been able to attend the Commission’s Symposium in Zurich in June as a result of funding Elisabeth secured to support participation by three eastern European geographers. The Zurich meeting was Marina’s first opportunity to participate in an international feminist geography meeting. In addition to Elisabeth’s paper in Belgrade, two of the remaining 80 presentations dealt with gender themes: Mirjana Racevicon “Serbia: Transition from Abortion to Contraception or Not?” and by Ankica Kuborovic on “Socio-demographic characteristics of female and male population of central Serbia: Beginning of the first decade of 21st century.” The gender component in the event in Belgrade represented an innovation in Serbian geography
Congratulations to Janet Momsen on receiving the 2007 Edward Heath Award from the Royal Geographical Society for research on gender and the developing world.

Janet was the founding chair of the IGU Commission on Gender and Geography (and the preceding Study Group) and also organized its first major conference in 1988 which resulted in her co-edited book Different Places, Different Voices: Gender and Development in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Janet retired from the University of California, Davis in November, having attained promotion to the highest level ever awarded to a woman geographer in the University of California system. She will be living in England and has been elected as a member of the International Gender Studies Group at Queen Elizabeth House, Oxford.
Amriah Buang has been commissioned by the Malaysia-based NAM (Non Alligned Movement Institute for the Empowerment of Women (NIEW) to conduct a study leading to the construction of data base on women’s empowerment in all the 118 NAM member countries, starting from 1st October 2007 through to the end of 2008.
Elisabetta Donini reports that the memory of the late Italian geographer, Anna Segre (Università de Torino) was honored at a conference dedicated to her in June, 2005 and publication of the book, Geografia, Società, Politica (Egidio Dansero et al.,eds). (see below). Through her research and her sociopolitical engagement, Anna deeply contributed to the development in Italy of a gender sensitive approach in environmental and geographical studies; she was also very interested in keeping in touch with the "gender and geography" international network. The third part of the book (p. 159-233) is focused on a gendered discussion of issues related to development, environment, space perception and cartography.
A very successful symposium on “Gender, Science and Technology: Vision for the 21st Century” was held at the 21st Pacific Science Congress, June 12-18 in Okinawa, Japan. The Congress was held in conjunction with a meeting of the Science Council of Asia where there was also a session on women, science, and family life. The next Pacific Science Congress will be in Tahiti, French Polynesia, in March 2009. Congratulations to Nancy Lewis, geographer and Director of Studies, East-West Center, Hawaii, on her election as Vice-President of the Pacific Science Association for a four-year term.
At the October meeting of the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers (US), the Program Committee organized a special plenary session to celebrate and reflect on the 25th anniversary of the paper “On Not Excluding Half of the Human in Human Geography,” (The Professional Geographer, 32, 1982, 11-32) by Janice Monk and Susan Hanson.

Congratulations to Tovi Fenster (Commission Chair) who has been named Head of Women and Gender Studies at the University of Tel Aviv, Israel. She took up this position (concurrent with her appointment in Geography) in August, 2007.
At the April 2007 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers, 45 sessions were sponsored or co-sponsored by the Geographic Perspectives on Women Specialty Group. Sessions ranged over a wide ranfe of themes, for example, the politics of activist research, gendered post-socialism, perspectives on gender-water geographies, quantitative geographies: beyond the critical/analytical binarism, ethics and practice in feminist research, and states and subjectivities: interrogating social organization of economic practice. Additionally, panel discussions addressed aspects of the experiences of women geographers by focusing on topics including the women of color and early career women in physical geography. Several “author meets critics” sessions highlighted recent feminist books as did an exceptionally well attended wine and cheese reception at a local bookstore which featured books published in feminist geography over the last year.
Cindi Katz, who with co-editor, Nancy K. Miller has been awarded the Council of Editors of Learned Journals Phoenix Award for Significant Editorial Achievement for their co-editorship of Women's Studies Quarterly. Congratulations.
