Welcome to the Virtual Geography Convention 2013!  If you have a presentation or blog post you wished published please contact me at catholicgauze [at] gmail [dot] com! 

An update on the useful and not so useful information being shared on Twitter at the Association of American Geographers conference in Los Angeles.

Saldanha: Anthropocene ushers in communism not from a priori universal human but constructed from catastrophe #aag2013

Anthropocene session: Kevin Surprise renames Anthropocene Age of Capital. #aag2013
