Annual Meeting, Middle States Division of the American Association of Geographers

Our annual meeting brings together geographers and those in related fields. There will be several paper sessions, panels, and poster sessions for presentations of research and related discussions in the broad field of Geography. Moreover, there will be facilitated networking, plenary talks, and a geography bowl quiz competition for students Friday evening. Students (high school/undergraduate/graduate) are especially encouraged to participate, as there will be cash prizes for the top student paper and poster presentations. Participants in the conference typically hail from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Puerto Rico, which comprise the 'Middle States' region of the American Association of Geographers.

Hofstra University will be the virtual host of this year’s meeting. Hofstra has a strong Department of Geography & Global Studies which offers BA degrees in Geography and Global Studies and a BS degree in GIS. Moreover, the university has a closely allied department, the Department of Geology, Environment and Sustainability, which features BS degrees in Geology and Environmental Resources, and BA, BS, and MA options in Sustainability Studies. We will be promoting inclusion through specific activities at this year’s regional meeting. Students from schools with populations that are traditionally underrepresented at conferences will be offered free registration for our Fall 2020 meeting. Moreover, we highly encourage meeting attendees to propose sessions and panels concerning issues such as social justice, racism in the academy, and mental health.
