Nepal/Himalaya sessions at the American Association of Geographers Annual Meeting in Denver, CO

Event Date: April 6, 2020 to April 10, 2020

American Association of Geographers Annual Meeting 2020
Denver, CO

Pre-Conference Symposium | April 4
The Nepal and Himalayan Geographies group has organized sessions as part of a two-day, pre-conference symposium on “Highlighting Asian Geographies”.  Geographers of Nepal and the Himalaya have been convening informally at AAG over the past two years to discuss common points of interest across different geographic subfields (physical geography, human geography, human-environment, GIS). The related themes of sustainability, disaster and infrastructure have emerged as both shared research interests for geographers of Nepal and the Himalaya, as well as key questions of global concern that can benefit from Himalayan perspectives.
The pre-conference symposium sessions are all on April 4:
Nepal and Himalayan Geographies: Keynote lecture
Nepal and Himalayan Geographies: Driving the debate on sustainability, disaster and infrastructure SESSION 1
Nepal and Himalayan Geographies: Driving the debate on sustainability, disaster and infrastructure SESSION 2

AAG Main Conference | April 6-10
A few highlights from Himalayas/Nepal related roundtables and panels:
