Economic Geography examines how we collectively organize society in space through the production, distribution, and consumption of finite resources. All that is changing as the spread of COVID-19 alters nearly all aspects of our economic and social lives. This panel starts a conversation on what those alterations are, what they might mean, and how economic geographers can help now and contribute to the organization of a better future.
Some of the topics we will discuss include:
- Open questions in economic geography that are now more urgent or completely new
- Key concepts and points we want to make to our students about this crisis and this moment.
- Finding lessons in how this crisis is unfolding that we can apply to other crises, and building teams to do so
- Where geographers can direct their energy if they want to create policy changes that will improve the response now and in the future
- Trends that concern us and, more importantly, give us hope
