The Rural Geography Special Group (RGSG) promotes research and education related to agriculture, rural development, and rural land use. This poster session is open to anyone (student, faculty, professional, etc.) whose poster is focused on a topic germane to rural geography. The large Poster Hall at the DC AAG will be divided into several Specialty-Group themed poster sessions that will occur simultaneously during one of the large poster sessions (Day/Time TBD). RGSG Chair, Chris Laingen, will be the organizer of this for our group. If you'd like to participate, register for the meeting and submit your abstract as you would normally. The only additional step is that you need to reach out to ME ( to ensure you're included in the RGSG-themed session. A simple email with a copy of your abstract/PIN number will suffice.
