The Cultural Geography Specialty Group is excited to seek posters that span the range of our discipline. Although presenters are welcome to submit posters that connect to the broad themes of cultural geography in any way that they see fit, we are especially keen for submissions that speak to one of four themes:

Methods: Cultural geography is defined, in part, by the diverse approaches that researchers deploy to understand the complex ways that culture both shapes and is shaped by the geographies of which it is a part. These include everything from participant observation to artistic practice; structured interviews to derive and drifts; discourse analysis to poetry; landscape analysis to material culture studies. We seek posters that both represent and seek to expand the ways that cultural geographers come to engage with the world.
Objects: As with our sub-discipline’s methodological range, cultural geography’s objects of study are equally capacious. Our objects span scales from the microbial to the galactic and sometimes challenge the notion of scale altogether. They can be as durable as the mountains and as ephemeral as ghosts. Although cultural geographies have long been closely associated with the artifacts of human societies, others within our discipline have been keen to remind us that the non-human world is inextricably woven into our cultural worlds.
Meanings: Cultural geography is also a discipline that explores the geographies of meaning. How and for whom do places, spaces, and landscapes come to mean? Making meaning is always both a project of inclusion and exclusion. Shedding light on those contested processes is a key part of the way that cultural geographers can speak not only to our discipline but to a broader public.
Publics: Many cultural geographers are also exploring new modes of public scholarship. Whether supporting open access initiatives, creating online portals to share public scholarship, starting podcasts, collaborating with artists, museums, and communities, or engaging in activism as a key part of the research process, they continue to develop new approaches to communicating their work to a broader audience. We are thus especially excited for posters that help our colleagues continue to expand the ways that we can define public scholarship.
