We are happy to announce that we are going to represent our agenda on connectivity, virtual/digital global production networks, and digital production/innovation at this year’s Global Conference for Economic Geography (GCEG) in Oxford. The planned sessions will serve to further hone and deepen our understanding of Digital Economies at Global Margins, following more exploratory sessions at AAG in April. We currently have two CfPs out (click on the links for details), which complement several of the GCEG key themes. The 4th GCEG will be in Oxford from August 19-22, 2015.
