Call for AAG panel members – New Media and Social Media for Geography

Posted on Posted in AAG, avsp

A decade ago we hosted our first panel on New Media in Geography at the AAG. I would like to revisit the topic this year in another panel that expands to include all of the ways that we informally publish/share information on the internet. There are many directions that the conversation could go, but I would like to focus on New & Social media:

  • in sharing knowledge/education
  • for presenting ideas
  • as a reinforcing aspects of the Geography community
  • Some of the conversation will inherently be historical in the discussion of growth, but hopefully we can get into use cases, best practices, and the always exciting anecdotes.

    If you are interested in participating please contact me via email (jesse at veryspatial .com) or on social networks @kindaspatial

    As mentioned in a previous post, we are trying some different things now that we have a decade behind us. We have been using a more conversational long format for the last few posts, for instance.

    Since we had to take a week off due to travel, we are going to continue the trend and release a podcast every other week. I am not sure how long this is going to last since I am already wondering why my weekend schedule is odd (not editing).

    These are all exploratory variations from our norm to figure out where we want to go/what we want to be moving forward. If you have any thoughts on our current trials or suggestions of what we might try please let us know!

    With our (Sue and my) trip to Greece, we are going to be late this week or we may skip the week and pick up again next weekend. We have had a great time at the Digital Technologies for Cultural Heritage and Tourism summer school offered by the University of the Aegean, in fact Sue is giving her last lecture of the field school as I type. If you are interested in digital archaeology it is a field school you may want to look into for next summer. It is an introductory level course, but as you can see from the program linked above, it covers a variety of topics.

    Have a good week!
