  • 34rd Annual PGSG Preconference to the 2022 AAG Annual Meeting

    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.


    34rd PRECONFERENCE DATE: Friday, February 18, 2022

    TIME: start time 10 am EST

Details on how to register will be posted soon. As with our past Preconferences, there will be a nominal $20 registration fee for tenure-track faculty.

There is no fee to register for student, post-doc, and non-TT attendees.

    Mountain Research and Development Vol 41, No 2 available online and open access

    In this open issue, a case study from China shows how bird photography tourism benefitted both biodiversity and livelihoods. Research from the Indian Himalaya examines links between urbanization, hazards, and vulnerability. A global analysis offers insights into challenges for sustainable governance of mountains, and a study on Canada’s mountain systems provides a nationally coherent basis for research, policy, and work on social issues. Finally, another global assessment proposes principles and ways of developing a network of mountain observatories.
