AAG 2012 CFP: New Voices in Rural Geography

Dear Colleagues:

The Rural Geography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers seeks papers from undergraduate and graduate students, junior faculty, and researchers new to topics in the field of rural geography to include in one or more New Voices in Rural Geography paper sessions for the 2012 meeting in New York, NY.  New Voices in Rural Geography paper sessions offer the opportunity for students, junior faculty, and those new to research topics in rural geography to present their work and receive feedback from knowledgeable people in the field.

To take part in the New Voices in Rural Geography, interested participants should send their abstracts to Colleen Hiner (cchiner@ucdavis.edu) and Renata Blumberg (blum0135@umn.edu) by September 19th. These emails should contain the presenter’s PIN number (obtained after registering at http://www.aag.org), whether he/she is a student, junior faculty, or new researcher to rural topics, paper title, and abstract.

The Rural Geography Specialty Group promotes research and education related to contemporary rural landscapes, societies, and economies in the developed and developing world. Specialty group members conduct research across an array of topics, including agriculture; land use; environmental governance; population; rural health, crime, and poverty; food systems; indigenous peoples; and rural restructuring processes.

Thank you for your assistance in advertising this call for papers for the New Voices in Rural Geography sessions at the 2012 meeting of the Association of American Geographers.

Sincerely,

Colleen C. Hiner                                                                     Renata Blumberg
