    34rd Annual PGSG Preconference to the 2022 AAG Annual Meeting

    The AAG Political Geography Specialty Group is pleased to announce the 34th Annual Preconference, which will be held virtually on Friday February 18th, 2022. Due to uncertainties regarding event scheduling with the local host and participant travel concerns, as well as cost and technology constraints that preclude a hybrid option, the Preconference will be held virtually this year. We hope this decision accommodates broader participation and provides certainty in the midst of changing conditions. We plan to return to an in-person Preconference in 2023 at the University of Colorado Boulder.
