Call for Submissions

The student representatives of the Ethnic Geography Specialty Group (EGSG) want to organize a session that explores the theoretical, empirical and methodological innovations in ethnic geography. We are especially interested in the work of both faculty and students. We believe that when faculty present alongside students, both mentorship and session attendance increase. Submissions from all fields and specializations that fit within the broad theme of ethnic geography are welcome.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
• Globalization, Transnationalism and Local Empowerment
• Mobilities and Migrations
• Socioeconomic Inequalities and Marginalized Populations
• Displacement and Segregation
• Racialization in the Trump Era
• The Role of Social Institutions
• Policies Impacting Ethnic Groups
• Ethnic Variances in Health in Urban, Suburban or Rural Areas
• Refugee Experiences in the US, Europe, or elsewhere
• International Ethnic Conflicts

Interested participants should send their abstracts to John Ponstingel (Jmp282@txstate.edu), and Yining Tan (ytan31@asu.edu), by October 31ST.
