The Department of Geography’s first Undergraduate Spring Conference (organized by Geography Students’ Association’s VP External, Emily Huang) was held on April 8th in the Geography Building. Jialin Yang, VP Academic and co-editor in chief of this year’s Trail Six, also gave everyone a glimpse of what the journal will look like this year.
There were five presenters this year, four from our department and one from UBC’s School of Library, Archival and Information Studies:
Geo-Yoniographies: An Exploration of Birth Places and Spaces
Where are the Gays in Where are the Men? A Continuation of Rural Masculinity and Gay Space
Kangaroo Rat Mounds and Vegetation Changes in the Chihuahuan Desert
Growing out of the Region & The Legitimating Imaginaries of Neo-Lamarckian Possibilism
Seth Gillis, Kelsey Land, Sam Bloom, Vanesa Chang, Maddi Dellplain, Kaeli Alexander
GEOG 495 Geographies of Social Movements in the Americas – [Untitled Video Project]
With the five presenters, all three streams of the undergraduate Geography program: Human Geography, Environment and Sustainability, and Physical Geography, were represented.
