AAG Tampa CFP- Rural Response to Crisis

This session will explore the general theme of Rural Response to Crisis. We are interested in papers engaging questions surrounding shifting economic, demographic, or social processes in rural regions following the recent financial crisis, and papers examining any of the following questions are particularly welcome:

  • How has rural migration changed in the wake of the recent recession?
  • What, if any, new forms of rural gentrification emerged from the housing-market crisis?
  • How has rural development shifted post-recession?
  • How have second-home, high-amenity, recreation-dependent destinations been impacted?
  • Does the housing crisis mark an end to exurban sprawl?
  • Are rural regions more vulnerable to future crises?
  • What characterizes the recovery in rural regions and differentiates it from the recovery in more urban areas?

We hope this session will feature work with broad geographical representation, so we welcome papers examining rural responses within any geographical context (inside or outside the U.S).  If you would like to be part of this session, please send Peter Nelson (pbnelson@middlebury.edu) your abstract and registration PIN by November 26.
