Working Landscapes, Livable Communities    July 13-19, 2019

Peter Nelson (Middlebury College) and Cheryl Morse (University of Vermont)  are pleased to announce they will host the Ninth Quadrennial Conference of British, Canadian, and American Rural Geographers in Vermont, USA.  The meeting will take place Saturday, July 13- Friday, July 19, 2019.  The conference theme is “Working Landscapes and Livable Communities.” We will spend time at the University of Vermont, Middlebury College, and the Mad River Valley.  Field studies will take us to the Northeast Kingdom and Champlain Valley regions of the state.

Approximately 15 representatives from each of the three countries are invited to attend. Each participant will present original research that fits within one of several themes.

In Fall 2018 we will post the procedures for applicants to apply to their respective country’s acceptance committee.
