AAG Annual Meeting in Boston


I attended the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers in Boston and participated in a number of sessions. Federico Cugurullo and I co-organised two paper sessions on the theme of ‘Situating Smart: Spatial and Material Politics of Smart Urbanisation’ and I organised a panel discussion on The Experimental City. On the way to the conference one morning, I stumbled across the Fenway Victory Gardens in the Frederick Law Olmsted’s Back Bay and Fens (pictured above). This is the oldest operating Victory Gardens in the US. Wonderful to see that they are still used for growing!
