This guided poster presentation will provide the audience with an introduction to the Black Geographies Speciality Group (BGSG) of the AAG, with a focus on pedagogical and research approaches in the subfield as currently practiced by faculty members. The poster session will feature insights from key thinkers in the subfield and will describe some of the tenets and commitments central to BGSG members. In particular, the poster presentation will provide an interactive opportunity for students and faculty to get a sense of how (and why) faculty across AAG are developing the subfield of Black Geographies, with important insights from BGSG members on the range of resources and materials in use by members in the classroom and through research, as well as how the AAG community may begin to explore connections to Black Geographies. Audience members will come away with a clear understanding of the kinds of work BGSG members are passionate about and will also be able to define key terms and approaches in this subfield.
