2008 AAG Call for Papers

Call for Papers: Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting,
Boston, April 15-19, 2008.

The Environmental Perception and Behavioral Geography Specialty Group would like to make a general call for papers for the Annual AAG Meeting in Boston, MA, April 15th-19th, 2008. We are soliciting calls for sessions, organized sessions, and individual papers that fit within our mission to advance the theoretical and applied interests of environmental perception and behavioral geography within the discipline of geography. We are open to both qualitative and quantitative research, taking a disaggregate approach to the study of human activity, culture, and society, on issues of human behavior, perception, attitudes, beliefs, memory, language, intentions, reasoning and problem-solving involving space and place. We are also very interested in co-sponsoring sessions with other specialty groups that would integrate with our focus. Since I have an idea for my own paper this year, I'd like to start by proposing a session on wayfinding.

The final deadline for sessions and papers to be submitted is October 31st, so please send your titles, abstracts, organized sessions, or questions and other inquiries to Dave Lemberg at by October 20th at the latest (earlier would help). Students, please apply for the EPBG 2008 Saarinen Paper Competition and 2008 Travel Grants.
