Conference // Call for Abstracts on "Exploring Geographic Connections"

Abstract submission for the conference "Exploring Geographic Connections", organised by the Australian National University and taking place in Canberra, 1-3 July 2015, is now open. The event, organised by the Institute of Australian Geographers at the Australian National University (ANU), focuses on exploring and strengthening the links between geography and the diverse domains that geographers apply themselves. Two planned sessions deal explicitly with the nexus.

The conference will draw attention to the existing and potential contributions made by geographers to the policy sphere and wider governance system through interactions with the business sector, the not for profit sector and others, in a wide range of contexts, from urban to rural. Of particular emphasis at this conference is the focus on exploring cultural connections, and foremost amongst those are the links to Indigenous communities. In pursuing the theme of geographic connections, the conference also turns the spotlight on the discipline itself, to inquire where Geography is heading from national and international perspectives.
