Biodiversity loss, the warming of cities, increasing cost and demand of housing with limited supply, and many other topics are issues relating to spatiality and sustainability. The University of Tennessee, Knoxville Department of Geography and Sustainability seeks to highlight Spatiality and Sustainability as meeting points for a broad range of disciplines exploring the changing distribution of both human and natural elements on our planet across space and time. We invite the submission of abstracts from undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty from all disciplines with a strong emphasis on the interdisciplinary and collaborative nature of space/time research. We aim to highlight ongoing research and work to build on sustainability and the spatiality/geography of that work. 


Suggested Topics Include (but are not limited to): Physical Geography (paleoenvironments, climate change, geomorphology, human-environment interactions, environmental studies), Human Geography (qualitative methods and social, cultural, political, economic, and historical studies), GIScience (remote sensing, transportation, geovisualization, modeling, space/time GIS). Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism Management, Landscape Architecture, Sociology, Film, and Popular Culture.
