Mark Graham’s Plenary Keynote ‘Digital Economies: Reconfiguring uneven geographies’ delivered at the Global Conference on Economic Geography, University of Oxford.
His talk was given as part of a plenary panel on ‘Digital Economies: Reconfiguring uneven geographies’. This panel of five scholars – representing a range of disciplines and backgrounds – discuss how digital technologies and related practices are interacting with economic geographies. Drawing from the fields of communications, development, business and finance the conversation covers both how geographical concepts matter and shape the digital as well as how the digital is (re)shaping and complicating the geographical organisation of the economy. The goal of this session is to highlight the changes in economic practice and power associated with digital technologies and the kinds of new economic places and spaces that are emerging in the global economy.
Presenters: Mark Graham, Rebecca Enochong, Matthew Zook, Robin Teigland, Jack Lihuan Qiu
