For years there has been a perception that the Rural Geography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers is focused on rural geography in the western world. In an effort to dispel that myth and in recognition of the cutting edge rural research occurring around the world, this session(s) will present the work of geographers studying rural issues in Africa, Asia, and/or Middle and South America.
To take part in these paper sessions, participants should first register for the AAG conference and submit their abstract at http://www.aag.org and take note of their PIN number. They then should send an e-mail to Dawn M. Drake (firstname.lastname@example.org). These emails should contain the presenter’s PIN number, paper title, and abstract. The deadline is 5pm CT, Friday, October 19th.
