Chris Gaffney Accepts JLAG 2019 AAG Publication Award
Colleagues and friends joined in honoring recipients of AAG Honors, Fellows, Specialty Group and other awards during the annual special luncheon on Sunday, April 7, 11:45 AM – 2:00 PM, Ballroom Salon 3, Lobby Level, Marriott. Christopher Gaffney received the AAG Publication Award on behalf of the Conference of Latin American Geography (CLAG), the premier organization for geographers engaging in research in Latin American and the Caribbean. CLAG has published various books, proceedings, and special publications, as well as it’s flagship journal, “Journal of Latin American Geography,” (JLAG). This is the only geographic publication dedicated to research in Latin America and the Caribbean. JLAG is also one of the highest-ranking journals that focuses on Latin American studies. Google Scholar ranked it 6th among these journals, placing it higher than other notable journals such as “Hispanic American Historical Review,” and journals that are published by larger, multipdisciplinary organizations such as “Latin American Research Review.” The 2019 AAG Annual Meeting was held in Washington, DC, April 3-7 at the Marriott and Omni hotels.
