The Race, Ethnicity, and Place (REP) Conference, the brainchild of Binghamton University's Department of Geography and administration, fosters dialogue on issues related to the racial and ethnic transformation of places. The overriding purpose of REP is to promote understanding among the myriad groups in American society, through research and discussion. REP encourages interdisciplinary perspectives and philosophical and methodological diversity. REP is open to participation by academicians, students, practitioners, lay persons and government, business and nonprofit agency representatives. The Conference ideally rotates among U.S. regions, incorporating a regional focus, while maintaining national and international perspectives.
Undergraduate and graduate students at Binghamton University are encouraged to submit posters in a competition for funding for travel, registration and conference meals to attend the REP VI conference. See the Research Posters page for details.
Previous conferences have been held at Binghamton University (2002 and 2010), Howard University (2004), Texas State University-San Marcos (2006), University of Miami (2008) and University of Puerto Rico (2012).
For over three decades, the Applied Geography Conferences has provided a forum for the exchange and critique of ideas related to the application of
geographic concepts, analytical techniques, data and methods. The conference brings together practitioners, academics and other professionals who seek geographic solutions and explanations to societal problems.
