XII Race, Ethnicity, and Place and MAD-AAG Joint Conference 

Washington, DC
October 11-14, 2023

Hosted by George Washington University

For over 20 years, the Race, Ethnicity, and Place (REP) Conference has brought together diverse groups of scholars to facilitate research on race and ethnicity while providing a gathering place for underrepresented scholars. The REP Conference allows faculty, professionals, and graduate students to engage in discussions of race and ethnicity in multiple places and spatial contexts.

The Mid-Atlantic Division of the AAG (MAD-AAG), as the AAG’s oldest regional division has facilitated community building among professional and academic geographers, students, and community members for more than 70 years. By collaborating with REP, MAD hopes to join an even larger community of scholars, activists, and engaged citizens for a national dialogue on race, ethnicity, and place.

The 2023 XII REP Conference in Washington DC aims to foster multiple ways of studying race and ethnicity and to broaden participation of scholars in geography and related social and spatial sciences.

The theme of the 2023 REP conference, Mapping and Empowerment, advances topics around critical mapping methods and geography curriculum, recruitment and retention in geography, and community-based funding opportunities for engaged scholarship. We call for original papers, paper sessions, and panel submissions that focus on race, ethnicity, and diversity, as well as any of the following topics:

  • Ethnicity
  • Race
  • Civil Rights
  • Place
  • Gender
  • Human Rights
  • Immigration
  • Health
  • Crime
  • Environment
