Who Are We?

The purpose of the Geographies of Food and Agriculture Specialty Group (GFASG) is to bring together Association of American Geographers (AAG) members who have mutual interests in the geography of food and agriculture.

The mission of the GFASG is to be instrumental in creating networking opportunities for students and faculty who study food and agricultural geographies but may be spread across disparate subdisciplines of geography. This specialty group will also provide an intellectual home for the multiplicity of exciting studies being conducted surrounding issues of food and agriculture in every type of space: rural, urban, exurban, and wild. The group will also facilitate the sharing of ideas and relevant information among its members and others; stimulate research and intradisciplinary partnerships; and provide awards to facilitate research in the geographies of food and agriculture. The GFASG will also encourage, facilitate, and sponsor the organization of paper sessions and discussion panels at the annual meeting of the AAG.
