BGSU hosts American Association of Geographers division meeting Bowling Green State University's School of Earth, Environment and Society planned to invite hundreds of geographers to campus for the annual meeting of the East Lakes Division of the American Association of Geographers. Like so many other events since March, the conference, scheduled Oct. 29-30, moved from in-person to virtual.
BGSU's Dr. Karen Johnson-Webb, an associate professor of geography, member of the national geography association and a regional councilor for the East Lakes Division, serves as conference chair. "Widening the Circle" is the theme of this year's virtual conference, hosted on the AAG's Zoom platform.
The conference includes paper and poster presentations, video field trips to Fort Meigs Historic Site and Ottawa Wildlife Refuge, three fireside chats, a plenary panel session about "Advancing Equitable Public Policies in an Era of Crises," a keynote presentation and the geography quiz bowl and student awards. A schedule and registration details are available at the division website.
