Southeastern Geographer Call for Papers

The Southeastern Geographer, one of the premier regional geography journals in the United States, invites contributions from members of the AAG. The journal has published the academic work of geographers and other social and physical scientists since 1961. A substantive focus of the journal is to publish geographic research that engages with conditions and events in “the south”, broadly construed, as they relate to conditions and events that extend over broader geographical reaches.  The journal serves as a forum for exploring the social, cultural, economic, and political diversity and broad climate and ecosystem variability that links “the south” to processes, flows, and conditions that extend across the country, continent and globe.

The journal also publishes approximately one special issue per year, and welcomes proposals for thematically or conceptually coherent special issues.  Special issues ofSoutheastern Geographer published over last 5 years include Carolina del Norte: Geographies of Latinization in the South (2011); Thinking about Micropolitan America (2014); and Innovations in Southern Studies (2011).

Southeastern Geographer is a quarterly publication of the Southeastern Division of the Association of American Geographers, and is available in print and digitally via Project Muse and several e-book platforms.  The journal welcomes research papers, book reviews, cover art and the occasional topical essay.
