Abstract

This article examines academic jet-setting in a time of climate destabilization associated with professional geographic travel through the concepts of ecological privilege and dys-ecologism. To illustrate this, it measures the flight-related ecological footprint of the 2011 annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers (AAG) in Seattle, Washington. It thus highlights the importance of scrutinizing the complex and dynamic interrelationships among consumption; associated socioecological benefits and detriments and their systemic manifestations; and hierarchy-related and power-infused categories of race, class, and nation—and their spatialities
