Another child who had had a birthday party the previous day saw all her gifts blow away, never to be found. Hero of the day was Mr. Thomas Gatlin, beloved superintendent of the two-story frame building that was Slocum School. Despite his characteristic limp and use of a cane, he hurried about the school, ordering kids inside from lunch and under their desks. The building blew away around them, but his quick action saved many lives.

Present school complex at Slocum Photo courtesy Sandy Fiedler , Townspeople quickly rebuilt Slocum. Located 12 miles southeast of Palestine in Anderson County , Slocum was founded by Edgar Threadgill McDaniel of Arkansas, who had established a store at the crossroads of wagon tracks; hence, the spot was called Crossroads.

However, application for a U. Post Office revealed that the name had already been taken. In Mr. McDaniel invented the name Slocum, a combination of two words. Reported reasons are varied: "Fortunes will be made here, but they will be slow coming," is one quote from McDaniel. Other reports had him saying that the post office was slow in coming or that town growth would be slow in coming. Who knows? Maybe he said different things at different times. Because county seats were too far away to travel to and from in one day by horse and wagon, little towns like this were vital for isolated farm families to conduct business.

In the early s Slocum sported a famous amateur baseball team whose star was pitcher F. Ernest Day, later a coach and teacher.

This includes climate change from faster warming than most of the rest of the planet, economic change from the search for resources brought about by thinning sea ice and melting permafrost, and political changes from new actors in the Arctic and new governance regimes.

There are few people better equipped to understand and explain these changes than Mead Treadwell who will deliver a keynote address on the changing map of the Arctic. He has served on the United States Arctic Research Commission starting in , and in was appointed chair of the commission.

To do so, the session is organized into ve themes nature, time, visuality, justice, and landscape , each of which will be addressed by a team of two geographers coming from different scholarly traditions and areas of expertise. Wednesday, April 22, a. Ukraine Roundtable 2. Geological Survey and Esri. The initial products from the collaboration include the data, a map, an ecosystem browser application, and a Special Publication by the Association of American Geographers AAG. The data are intended to be useful for climate change impact analyses, biodiversity conservation planning, assessments of economic and social value of ecosystem goods and services, scientic research, and resource management.

In addition to being downloadable in the public domain, the resources will be included as landscape content in the Living Atlas of ArcGIS Online. As a mesoscale, data-derived, global ecosystems map, this map is an improvement on and extends previous macroscale, interpretive, ecoregionalizations of the planet. Sustained uncertainty about the eventual status in Eastern Ukraine suggests the possibility for greater longevity of this situation - a condition not unlike Transnistria in Moldova, and South Ossetia and Abkhazia in Georgia, which have maintained their de facto statehoods since the early s.

As Moscow openly supports the elections held in separatist "people's republics" in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine, outside observers look on anxiously at the precedent this may suggest that of a sovereign state annexing territory by force, supporting splinter "people's republics," and then returning to "business as usual.

Feddema, University of Kansas Melinda D. The overall goal of the symposium is to facilitate and enhance dialog among physical geographers on emerging developments, challenges, and approaches related to physical geography. An additional goal is to experiment with alternative formats for physical geography sessions at future AAG annual meetings.

Broadly dened, environmental reconstruction involves the study of past climates, landscapes, and biological systems, along with the reclamation of altered environments. This integrative research theme cuts across the many facets of physical geography. The invited speakers include geographers and scientists from related disciplines. The complexity of the climate system and the multifaceted linkages between natural and human systems complicates planning for future change. Another hurdle is the multiple sources of uncertainty such as internal climate variability, land cover change, spatial and temporal interdependencies, and sectoral synergies.

When interacting with stakeholders or addressing the public directly about climate change, scientists are often advised to "keep the message simple. Recently, the potential value of framing climate change planning in terms of complexity and uncertainty has been recognized by many physical and social scientists, including geographers. The challenge is to communicate climate change in a manner that inspires action, but also leads to robust decision-making.

In this address, the evolution of climate change communication is explored, attempts to incorporate complexity and uncertainty into local and regional climate change assessments are evaluated, and opportunities for the development of more nuanced communication strategies are considered. Geographers are involved in all aspects of climate change research and applications, from modeling the complex climate system to assisting stakeholders in planning for climate change.

It behooves us to carefully consider our roles and responsibilities in climate change communication. AAG Past President, Julie Winkler, will also confer the AAG Presidential Achievement Award upon Diana Liverman of the University of Arizona for her extraordinary contributions to understanding the human dimensions of global change, including the impacts of climate on society and issues of equity and climate change, and for her leadership roles in numerous boundary organizations, including Future Earth, that strengthen partnerships with scientists, policymakers and stakeholders to promote regional and global sustainability.

GeoHumanities While the discipline of geography has traditionally embraced and contributed to the humanities, there has been a remarkable resurgence in the past decade of intellectual interplay between geography and the humanities in both academic and public circles. Many humanities scholars and well-known writers and artists are increasingly incorporating geographic concepts, technologies, and methods into their work, while geographers have recently gained new insights by borrowing from developments across a great range of humanities disciplines.

Metaphors and core geographic concepts such as place, space, landscape, scale, and mapping now permeate literature, philosophy, the arts, and other humanities, and the broader imaginative reinterpretation of these concepts has in turn led to a renaissance of creativity in geography. The interactions between Geography and the Humanities are growing rapidly. GeoHumanities publishes original peer-reviewed articles that span conceptual and methodological debates in geography and the humanities; critical reflections on analog and digital artistic productions; and new scholarly interactions occurring at the intersections of geography and multiple humanities disciplines.

Call for Papers GeoHumanities includes full-length scholarly articles its Articles section, and shorter creative pieces that cross over between the academy and creative practice in the Practices and Curations section. GeoHumanities is seeking papers in both of these sections. Submissions will be managed through Manuscript Central. The reference formatting and style guidelines will be the same as other AAG journals 15th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. GeoHumanities Articles will have a maximum length of 8, words including references , Practices and Curations will have a maximum length of 4, words including references.

GeoHumanities welcomes papers that engage new or traditional humanities and geographical themes including place, space, landscape and cartography. Any questions should be directed to the editors Tim Cresswell at t. That diversity exists and often thrives within the discipline of geography. Under the banner geography we perform regression analyses, conduct in-depth interviews, run computer simulations, undertake archival research, collect soil samples, georectify data, and organize focus groups to name just some of our methods.

We use and contribute to the making of theories, perspectives, and technologies as diverse as Lacanian psychoanalysis and Germanium detectors. At this years conference we highlight that diversity through sessions organized around the theme of radical intradisciplinarity. The use of the term radical to describe our disciplines un-disciplined nature is meant to signal that geographys intra-disciplinarity is not a passing fad but rather is at the root of, and fundamental to, geographical practices, and to highlight the ways in which those un-disciplined practices can lead to important transformations.

We look forward to posters and paper sessions that highlight the possibilities and suggest the limitations of our disciplines intra-disciplinarity.

The GeoHumanities Themed Sessions at the AAG Chicago Annual Meeting seek contributions from scholars from three broad groups: geographers who have engaged humanities topics in creative ways; humanities scholars who have integrated new geographic techniques or technologies or otherwise explored emerging geographic themes in their work; and popular artists and writers whose literary or artistic works investigate geographic concepts or perspectives, or.

The new AAG journal, and these Themed GeoHumanities Sessions also respond to a growing awareness of how core geographic concepts such as space, place, landscape, scale, and mapping are increasingly permeating the Humanities disciplines and popular culture and the arts. Thus, the GeoHumanities Theme of sessions in Chicago welcomes papers and presentation on creative work taking place at the intersection of geography and the humanities by writers, artists, geographers, and humanities scholars.

These Sessions also respond to a world undergoing profound change, and encourage productively transgressing the bounds of traditional categories to open up new directions in scholarship, literature, and the arts.

As Chicago grew, raw materials from throughout the Midwest built the city and fueled its industries. Today, Chicago serves as a major transportation and logistical hub for the Great Lakes region. This brings opportunities and challenges. Chicago, like other cities in the Great Lakes region, experiences income inequality, racism, housing segregation and the complex challenges of developing urban policies that integrate sustainable development with the provision of jobs, housing and opportunities for all. Through this center, sessions have been organized on topics ranging from nding employment in the business, government, and nonprot sectors, preparing for and sustaining an academic career, developing networking skills, enhancing students employability through internships and work-based learning, integrating career preparation into geography programs and curricula, the importance of work-life balance in academia, and working internationally.

Now in its second year, this is the interdisciplinary open access journal for regional issues in geography, economics, planning, and political science.

RSRS has quick turnaround times from submission to acceptance, rigorous peer-review and a wide readership. TPG publishes papers that engage in political analysis of questions involving the territorial or spatial mediation of a particular problem relating to governance arrangements, ethnic and other conflicts, economic regulation, etc. For details about the full range of RSA journals visit the Routledge exhibition stand.

    Jennifer M. Mizelle Jr. John Archer, Paul J. General Tips Manage your schedule. This is the largest geography conference in the world, so you'll find no shortage of activities that reflect your interests. With so much going on, you cant possibly do it all. Consider making a daily agenda to print or transfer to a smartphone and keep your conference program handy to confirm session details. Prioritize your activities. Search the online or printed conference program to identify topics, speakers, and sessions of interest. High-profile activities include plenary talks, keynote addresses, and session tracks organized around the featured themes of each conference.

    Be flexible. Dont schedule your time so rigidly that you have to miss out on unexpected opportunities, such as a last-minute opening for an exciting field trip or a spontaneous conversation with a promising new contact. Refer to the daily updates, Geograms, to stay informed of any important announcements, cancellations, scheduling changes, or room location updates. Get out of your comfort zone. The Annual Meeting is a great opportunity to explore a facet of the discipline that has piqued your curiosity or to become acquainted with a topic or technique that is completely new to you.

    Each specialty group SG highlights one session that showcases its focus, so these presentations are especially helpful for getting introduced to a new area of interest. Pace yourself! Rest up so you can fully appreciate the conference's offerings. Be sure to set aside time to explore the city, make new contacts, and reconnect with friends and acquaintances as these can be valuable learning, networking, and professional development experiences. Lunch breaks are brief and conference facilities can get quite busy during these times, so consider having a snack and beverage on hand.

    Dress for success. Business casual attire is appropriate for all conference events. Indoor temperatures can vary; consider wearing layers or carrying a light sweater or jacket. You might need to walk short distances between conference venues, so comfortable footwear is recommended. You are not required to submit a copy of your paper.

    Poster sessions: Presenters are available to discuss their posters for the duration of the session. Illustrated paper sessions: Presenters give brief talks about their posters. Afterwards, attendees can get a closer look and ask questions. Plenary sessions: Several plenary sessions featuring highly distinguished speakers are hosted by the AAG, and some specialty groups organize topical plenary talks.

    Session Participation Tips Leave and enter quietly if you come or go during a session. If the room is full, find a seat on the floor or stand in the back.

    Kindle Editions

    Check out the room before you present, if you can. Bring your presentation in two formats in case a computer cant read your file. Introducing yourself to your co-presenters is a good way to network and make connections. Be respectful of time limits and come well-prepared, having thoroughly rehearsed your presentation. You never know who might be in the audience, so be sure to put your best foot forward!

    Consider taking some time off before your session to maintain your focus and steady any last-minute jitters. Bring a few printed copies of your paper or presentation notes to share with audience members or new contacts. As a presenter, it is polite to stay for the entire session. Networking Tips If networking with specific people is high on your list of priorities, try to attend their sessions, or email them ahead of time with a request to connect during the meeting. Carry business cards to give to new contacts. Conference badges include participants' affiliations, so keep an eye out for representatives of organizations or departments of interest to you.

    Badge ribbons will alert you to attendees' roles at the meeting and within the association. If you attend an excellent talk, or if you have to miss a session of interest, consider following up with the presenter s after the meeting by phone or email. Many presenters are willing to share a copy of their presentation or paper upon request.

    See the program and bulletin boards for details. If you are a shy or introverted person, try a field trip or specialty group activity to meet new people in a smaller group and a more relaxed, informal setting. The buddy system is a good strategy for being comfortable at events and activities where you might not already know other participants. Winners of student awards and recipients of AAG honors are recognized at the Awards Luncheon, held on the last day of the conference.

    Tickets can be purchased at On-Site Registration. Events and Activities Field trips and workshops: The program lists numerous opportunities to explore the city and surrounding regions with knowledgeable guides and to participate in workshops on a variety of topics. Advance registration and a fee are required for most field trips and workshops.
