ON MODELS AND POLICY MOBILITY
Friday, November 22 | 10:15 AM-12:00 PM
Vancouver CC WEST, Room 301
"Within anthropology, much has been written about policy travel as a process of ‘translation’, negotiation, adaptation and ‘domaining’ but less attention has been paid to the models per se and the work they perform within the policy process. What exactly are ‘models’ and how should we theorize them anthropologically?"

RECONCEPTUALIZING URBAN POLICY MOBILITIES: A DIALOGUE WITH CRITICAL GEOGRAPHY
Friday, November 22 | 2:00-3:45 PM
Vancouver CC WEST, Room 111
"The focus of this panel will be on the mobilities of urban scale policy in an age of political experimentation, exploring structural contexts and conjunctures and specific sites of the localization of variegated capitalist relations. A particular focus will be on the power and agency of diverse actors as the relations between sites are remade and reimagined, often in complex, surprising and non-linear ways."

CONJUNCTURAL PROMISES: A RETROSPECTIVE ROUNDTABLE HONORING JOHN CLARKE
Friday, November 22 | 4:15-6:00 PM
Vancouver CC WEST, Room 208
"This retrospective roundtable explores the implications of Clarke's work for different time-space contexts, exploring some of the social, economic, cultural, governmental, political and historical forces that have coalesced in the making of contemporary crises as well as the possibilities of building new counter-hegemonic good sense. Panelists, all of whom are among the ‘voices in his head’ in his latest book Critical Dialogues: thinking together in turbulent times, will provide critical comments on John Clarke's influence on their thinking, their work, and their politics."
