Myself and two group members, Sara Harrison and Qing Lu are off to present at the Association of American Geographers annual conference in San Francisco. I’ve pasted the links to sessions below. Also check out other Geothink.ca presenters as well. Hope to see you there!

Group Members at the 2015 Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting in Chicago – April 20-25th

The AAG is always a great event, an opportunity to see the leading edge of geographic research, reconnect with colleagues, and of course, to meet new people while enjoying some great American cities. This year, the AAG returns to Chicago at the end of April – hopefully with some warm spring weather (we were spoiled by the AAG in Tampa last year). For this 2015 edition, myself and Andrea Minano will be presenting. Here are the sessions:
