Announcing the Fourth Global Conference on Economic Geography, Oxford, 19-22 August 2015

The Fourth Global Conference on Economic Geography, titled Mapping Economies in Transformation, will take place in Oxford, UK, on 19-22 August 2015. Building on the success of previous global conferences held in Singapore, Beijing and Seoul, the Conference is expected to attract hundreds of scholars with the objective to foster interdisciplinary worldwide dialogue on the state of the art and the future agenda of economic geography.

Key themes of the conference will include: consumption, digital, emerging, financial, green, innovation, labour, political, resource, regional, social, and urban economies, as well as epistemologies for understanding the world in transformation.
