CAG 2021: 71st Annual Meeting & Conference

Embracing connectivity: Coming together and moving forward 

VIRTUAL  Hosted by UNBC Geography  June 7-11, 2021

The Geography Program at UNBC is pleased to extend an invitation to the 71st Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association of Geographers. We are very excited to host the CAG's upcoming conference, which will run virtually from June 7-11, 2021.


The theme of the conference is Embracing connectivity: Coming together and moving forward and we invite submissions from all areas of geographic scholarship. As we look forward to a post-COVID world, geographers are needed more than ever to lead the way in bringing together scholarship from across the spectrum (humanities, social and natural sciences) that addresses the pressing challenges of our age (e.g., the climate crisis, Indigenous rights and tenure, environmental change, a wide range of justice issues, antiracism). Now,

more than ever, geographic scholarship, ideas, perspectives, and tools remain effective means by which to enhance greater understanding, cooperation, empathy, and equity in the face of societal and, indeed, global issues and challenges.

The virtual 2021 CAG conference is a tremendous opportunity to reconnect as a scholarly community, share our achievements and learnings, and support each other as we move forward together in these uncertain times. Join us and be part of a resilient and dynamic future for Canadian geography!
