The Northeast Agricultural and Resource Economics Association (NAREA) will hold its 2022 Annual Meeting from Sunday, June 12, 2022 through Tuesday, June 14, 2022, with post-conference workshops to be held June 14-15, 2022. Meeting events will take place at the Hilton Mystic, CT, starting with a welcome reception on Sunday evening. We are committed to hosting a diverse and inclusive conference and we encourage participation from academic, public, and private sector economists interested in agricultural, environmental, or resource issues. We especially welcome professionals, faculty, and graduate students from communities that are under-represented in the economics profession.
This year’s conference will feature selected and organized paper sessions, a poster session, and a special symposium/panel discussion on social justice issues in agriculture and environmental economics sponsored by the USDA. The conference boasts two keynote addresses, including an address by Parke Wilde, a leading expert on U.S. food and nutrition policy. The second keynote address will feature a Rising Star: details coming soon!
Two post-conference workshops, held concurrently on June 14-15, 2022, will focus on the following themes:
- Issues of Land Succession, Social Equity, and Environmental Justice Affecting Agriculture (coordinated by J. Wesley Burnett and Clayton Michaud, Economic Research Service)
- Ecosystem Services (coordinated by Stephen Swallow, University of Connecticut)
The call for abstracts will go out in early December and we will begin accepting abstract submissions in early February.
