The Rural Geography Specialty Group of the American Association of Geographers seeks papers from undergraduate and graduate students, junior faculty, and researchers new to topics in the field of rural geography to include in one or more New Voices in Rural Geography paper sessions for the 2020 meeting in Denver, CO. New Voices in Rural Geography paper sessions offer the opportunity for students, junior faculty, and those new to research topics in rural geography to present their work and receive feedback from knowledgeable people in the field and members active within the specialty group.

The Rural Geography Specialty Group (RGSG) promotes research and education related to contemporary rural landscapes, societies, and economies in the developed and developing world. Specialty group members conduct research across an array of topics, including agriculture; land use; environmental governance; population; rural health, crime, and poverty; food systems; indigenous peoples; and rural restructuring processes.
