„Integrative Geographien – Geograph_innen und Geographien in Bewegung“

NKG XIIISo betitelte das Grazer Tagungs-Team in diesem Jahr die „Neue Kulturgeograophie XIII“. Die Tagung, die zum ersten Mal an einer österreichischen Universität Station machte, belegte, dass es sich lohnt, Grenzen aufzubrechen und zu überwinden. Seien es räumliche Grenzen, Grenzen innerhalb der Forschungsfelder der Humangeographie oder Grenzen akademischer Diskussionszusammenhänge. Die vielfältigen Beiträge belegten das Potential.

Auch Mitglieder der AGEF präsentierten ihre Ergebnisse. Wir danken dem Organisationsteam der NKG 2016 für die gelungene Tagung!!
