Conference presenters may submit their papers for possible publication in the volumes co-edited by Gary Backhaus and John Murungi. Even though most of the papers collected are from conference participants, these volumes are not merely “conference proceedings.” The volumes are organized around a theme, and the papers are selected to form a coherent whole.

Conference Presenters and Society Members are strongly encouraged to support our publications. Volumes may be purchased at the reduced conference rate. Please consider these volumes for textbook adoptions.

General Guidelines: Papers from all academic disciplines, professions, and anyone with life experiences to share are welcome.  Papers meet the philosophic component, broadly conceived, by raising questions and engaging in reflective thought. Papers meet the geographical component, broadly conceived, by thematically focusing upon the geographical component of a topic. We have coined the expression: “the geographicity of phenomena” to highlight the point that any and everything exhibits a geographical aspect.
