Call for Papers

Re-Exploring the North: Social and Natural Transformations in the Circumpolar North

Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers
Washington, DC
14-18 April 2010

The Circumpolar North is rapidly transforming. Over a century ago, geographers pioneered Arctic exploration. Now, once again, geographers are on the cutting edge of (re)-exploring rapid economic, political, environmental, and climatic change in the region. This session invites papers examining any aspect of changes in the human, physical, cultural, or environmental geography of this region. We especially welcome contributions that present results from fieldwork and other research activities undertaken during the International Polar Year or those funded by the National Science Foundation. Outstanding papers will be considered for publication in Polar Geography.

Please, send your abstract to me by 20 October 2009. You will also be able to directly register at the AAG website and forward me your PIN (see below). We would appreciate if you indicate your interest in this session in advance so that I could plan accordingly.

AAG abstract submission instructions:

In order to submit an abstract, go the AAG website (, click on '2010 Annual Meeting'. You will then need to 'Register to Attend' for the conference and 'Submit an Abstract'. Once you do, you will receive a PIN number. Send that to me ( and I will include your paper in one of the sessions. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 28 October 2008.

There is a slightly new procedure for organizing sessions this year and it might be possible to include your paper in one of these sessions through the AAG website. However, to ensure that you are included, send me the PIN and I will pull together the papers that are submitted into appropriate panels.
