- Event Admins
The 52nd Annual Meeting of the Western Regional Science Association
(WRSA) will be held 24-27 February 2013 at Fess Parker's Doubletree
Resort in Santa Barbara, California.
The WRSA meeting includes a series of Remote Regions Northern
Development sessions to accommodate social scientists who have a special
interest in research on economic, social, political, and cultural issues
in remote, sparsely settled regions in the circumpolar north and
elsewhere. Organizers have issued a general call for papers from social
scientists doing research in northern and other remote regions.
Examples of specific topics include: the consequences of new technology;
the effects of government expenditures; the conditions for success or
failure of development projects; relations between the subsistence and
market economies; regional benefits and costs of development; economic
integration and cultural preservation; community development; changing
social patterns; Native sovereignty and federalism; migration; and
institutional change and resource governance in remote regions. Papers
on any topic consistent with the general theme are welcomed.
Organizers also welcome special sessions and are particularly interested
in sessions that address a particular theme from the perspective of a
number of countries or regions. Please contact Greg Protasel
(GP@uaa.alaska.edu) if you are interested in organizing such a session.
Information about association membership, registration, hotel
reservations, and related matters will be distributed to those
responding to the call for papers.
