Themes at AAG 2018
Contributions to the Black Geographies theme will address the meaningful role of Black communities and individuals as they advance the production of geographic knowledge and space-making practices. Likewise, contributions will encourage the critical reflection on the issues, processes, intrinsic qualities, and interconnections that shape Black lives and geographies on local, national, continental, and international scales.
Hazards, Geography, and GIScience
Geographers are uniquely situated to address the myriad challenges presented by hazards due to the interdisciplinary nature of our discipline. Through climate change science, GIS, remote sensing, and, perhaps most importantly, the united interest in human dimensions of global change, geographers are well-equipped to research and apply their work in response to and in preparation for natural hazards.
Public Engagement in Geography
Geographers have important perspectives on a host of environmental, social, and technological issues. Moreover, the discipline’s ultimate sustainability and efficacy depends upon being more recognizable and better understood among a broad array of communities. This special theme within the 2018 AAG Annual Meeting will create and open spaces for demonstrating, debating, and improving how geographers engage public groups through their research, teaching, and other professional practices.
