Economic Geographies of Livestock

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups: Rural Geography Specialty Group
Organizers: Dawn Drake
Chairs: Dawn Drake


Pursuant to a request from Palgrave-Macmillan to submit a proposal for an edited volume related to the theme of Economic Geographies of Livestock, I am seeking papers that might become part of the large book proposal for a session at AAG. When I say "economic geographies" that can be as narrow as pure economic geography or as broad as the notion that because livestock are part of the agricultural economy that the paper is economic geography. The only thing I am really passionate about is an applied, rather than theoretical perspective. While including theory is important, I would like to see a lot of good hands-on or data driven research. I would love to have a collection of presentations from different perspectives, geographic locations, types of livestock, etc.
