2 Upcoming AAG Webinars

Encroachment or Opportunity? Geography in a World of Interdisciplinary Programs.
4:30-5:50 Eastern Time, October 23, 2020.

This webinar features Grant Saff (Hofstra University), Melissa Gilbert (Temple University), Kavita Pandit (Georgia State University), and Hengchun Ye (California State University Los Angeles). 

At issue are the opportunities and challenges faced by geography departments among a growing number of interdisciplinary programs in closely related fields such Environmental Studies, Global and International Studies, GIScience, Urban Studies, Geosciences, Environmental Science and Sustainability Studies.  Sometimes geographers have built alliances with nearby disciplines, but sometimes competition has ensued.  These issues have led to questions about rebranding, renaming, merging or blending geography with other programs.  The four panelists, leaders in their fields, have faced these questions in a range of universities.

This webinar is free and open to all interested parties.
