On November 22-24, UWG geographers attended the Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Division of American Geographers in Knoxville, TN. In the shadow of the Sunsphere (no, Bart Simpson fans, there is not actually a wig shop at the top), they presented academic work and participated in the Geography Bowl. Additionally, Dr. Georgina DeWeese,
back in her not-so-old stomping grounds, helped to lead a field trip of Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains for conference participants.
