Also, we have just uploaded to N+1 SQEK website the following document: “AAG session abstracts for February 2012 SQEK-organized sessions”. This is all the published abstracts for the sessions organized for SQEK at the Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting in New York City, Friday, 24 February, 2012. The sessions were entitled “Squatting and Social Centers: Resistance and Production of Critical Spaces” (5 sessions, 8am-6:20pm). All abstracts were culled from the AAG conference website.
