If you would like to only receive the digital edition of JLAG, write a note to that effect in the special instructions box when subscribing. However, be aware that when you elect to receive the digital edition only, you will have to access JLAG through Project MUSE.

Here are some benefits of CLAG membership:

  • Participation in a community that started nearly five decades ago, spans the hemisphere and Europe, includes several generations, and is central to maintaining Latin Americanist faculty lines in university programs.
  • An opportunity to make professional contacts that can assist with research logistics, recommendations, teaching materials, and other types of support.
  • An international conference that is large enough to be diverse but small enough to appreciate it.
  • Opportunities to do service toward building an academic career.
  • Awards to graduate students for research and travel (join for $20 and become eligible for $500 in travel funds and $1,500 in research grants).
  • Awards to recognize scholarship and service.
  • Participation in a non-profit, international organization that works to enhance the diversity of perspectives involved in research on the places of the Americas as well as to mitigate the global divide in access to the resulting research publications.
  • An opportunity to support JLAG, the world’s only academic periodical that specializes in geographical research on Latin America and the Caribbean, and one that is published with enough frequency (three issues per year) to ensure a relatively short time from submission to print.
