Message from the Chair
The purpose of the Development Geographies Specialty Group (DGSG) is to provide a forum for research, education, and practice related to development studies and to developing areas. The specialty group was formally established in 2003. The specialty group has organized several pre-AAG conferences, including meetings in Boulder, Berkeley and Clark University.
DGSG is a very active specialty group with nearly a dozen representatives in leadership roles. Dr. Jeffrey Bury at the University of California, Santa Cruz is the current chair and welcomes questions or feedback at any time (firstname.lastname@example.org).
