A quarterly publication of the Southeastern Division of the Association of American Geographers, Southeastern Geographer has published the academic work of geographers and other social and physical scientists since 1961. Building on its history as a regional publication, the journal publishes 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 invites scholarship highlighting 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. Southeastern Geographer is available both in print and digital formats.
