Rethinking Remoteness, Isolation, and Peripherality

10-18 September 2019, Svaneti & Tbilisi, Georgia

This multidisciplinary conference critically examines the purported drawbacks and potential benefits to remoteness, isolation, and peripherality. We welcome presentations addressing any region of the world as well as innovative perspectives that highlight the complex intersections of multiple peoples, places, and polities. Presentations last 15 minutes and will be followed by question time. Note that, due to the ‘remote’ location of the conference, audio-visual aids will not be available for presentations.

The first deadline for abstracts is 30 September 2018. (Later abstracts may be accepted if there is room available at the conference, but people who submit an abstract prior to the deadline will have the first opportunity to reserve a spot and to take advantage of the early registration rate.)  

This interdisciplinary, cross-sectoral, international conference considers the economic and developmental advantages and disadvantages faced by microstates, island territories, and arctic regions, exploring theory, empirically grounded best practice, and political-economic strategy.

To propose a presentation, please fill out this presentation proposal form, and e-mail it to Write ‘Abstract for REMOTE’ in the subject line of the e-mail.

If you have any questions, please e-mail convenor Shawn M. Clankie (
