Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers


Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers

The Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers (CLAG) was formed in 1970 to foster geographic education and research on Latin America.[1] A Board of Directors governs CLAG. CLAG publishes a Newsletter and the Journal of Latin American Geography. It also operates CLAGNET, an electronic Listserv for members.

The Syracuse University Archives preserve documents and photographs related to the history of the organization because the long-standing Executive Director, David J. Robinson, is a professor at that university.
