RGS-IBG Annual International Conference: 1st-4th September 2020, London.
Call for Abstracts: “Legacies of austerity: what, who, and when does it leave 
behind?”
Abstract deadline – Wednesday 5th February.
Session convenors: Sander van Lanen (University of Groningen) and Sarah Marie 
Hall (University of Manchester)
Session Sponsor: Social and Cultural Geography Research Group
Over a decade has passed since the 2008 financial crisis, but the socio-spatial 
consequences of austerity still haunt contemporary spaces of everyday life. The 
narrative of austerity shifted from austerity as crisis ‘measure’ to governing 
‘ideology’. What does this transformation mean for social, cultural and 
economic geographies? How does this shift affect austerity’s spatial outcomes, 
reception and resistance? Does austerity still hold as an explanatory factor or 
are we facing poverty by other means? In two sessions, we examine how 
austerity’s legacies settle in everyday life and shape everyday geographies.

In the first session, creative output made by, with, and for groups living with 
austerity explore its legacies. Accompanied by talks, these forms of 
co-production explore how austerity has taken root in everyday lives and 
experiences.

During the second session, 15-minute conference papers address the legacies of 
austerity, including ‘austerity events’ and ‘austerity ideologies’. How did 
austerity reassemble everyday life and transform social relations? This session 
invites projects that assess austerity’s embedded legacies, now and into the 
future.

Together, these sessions explore how the legacies of austerity become embedded 
in the ‘new normal, and how the future is imagined in response to, or in spite 
of, these legacies.
