Call for Participation: Geography and the Humanities Symposium

The Association of American Geographers, in conjunction with the
University of Virginia's College of Arts & Sciences and the American
Council of Learned Societies, is organizing a symposium on geography
and the humanities. The symposium will be held at the University of
Virginia in Charlottesville on June 22-24, 2007. The symposium will
include a special event at nearby Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's
historic estate. Thirty to fifty participants are sought,
approximately one-third drawn from each of the following categories:
1) geographers who have engaged the humanities directly in their
work; 2) scholars in the humanities who have integrated geography or
GIS into their work; and 3) popular writers or artists who provide a
geographically-informed view in works of fiction, art, or film.

Those interested in participating in the symposium as presenters
should submit a one-page summary of their proposed topic, describing
relevant research conducted and previous directly-related
publications, along with a brief resume or CV to: Geography and the
Humanities Symposium Applications Committee, c/o Douglas Richardson
at <mailto:drichardson_at_aag.org>drichardson_at_aag.org. Applications for
participation should be received no later than December 12, 2006.
Earlier submission is encouraged. In order to defray the costs of
participation, applicants in financial need who are accepted for
participation in the symposium may apply for funding to support travel costs.
