Membership

The Conference of Latin America Geography (CLAG) is a non-profit organization with a mission to foster geographic education and research on Latin America, publish the Journal of Latin America Geography (JLAG), and host the conference of Latin America Geography. Membership is open to all who wish to further the mission of CLAG.

CLAG publishes the Journal of Latin American Geography, and CLAG membership includes a subscription to the Journal of Latin American Geography.  The University of Texas Press distributes JLAG and manages CLAG membership transactions.  To join CLAG or renew your membership, please go to the UT Press website; when you subscribe to JLAG you join CLAG and vice versa.

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, is central to promoting research on Latin America and its diaspora, and seeks to maintain faculty lines focused on Latin America in university programs everywhere.
  • An opportunity to make professional contacts that can assist with research logistics, recommendations, teaching materials, and other types of support.
  • An invitation to attend CLAG’s international conference that is large enough to be diverse but small enough to allow for meaningful professional and collegial engagement.
  • Opportunities to do service toward building an academic career.
  • Contributing to an organization that supports young scholars. CLAG grants 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.
