2022 Virtual IASNR Conference

October 4-6, 2022

The International Association for Society and Natural Resources (IASNR) community values what professionals and students contribute to society and natural resources research and practice. Each year we gather to celebrate, share research, reconnect with colleagues, make new connections, and welcome new faces at our annual IASNR Conference (formerly ISSRM).

Many people could not travel to the June in-person conference so we are hosting a virtual conference in October 4-6, 2022.

The 2022 IASNR Virtual Conference theme is “Access & Equity”—the conference begins on Tuesday October 4 through to Thursday October 6. Presentations, talks, panels, and activities will occur continuously during the three-day conference and will be recorded for asynchronous viewing. We invite IASNR members, new contributors, and young scholars from across the world to submit abstracts and participate in this unique opportunity to build bridges among the global natural resource social science community.

The 2022 Virtual IASNR Conference Organizers are Candace May (South Dakota State University, USA), Will Rifkin (University of Newcastle, Australia), and Kenneth Wallen (University of Idaho, USA).

A call for organized session proposals and abstracts will be sent soon!
