Media and Communication Geography

last person joined: yesterday 

The Media and Communication Geography Specialty Group aims to provide a forum for intellectual exchange between geographers studying media and communication issues within a political, economic, or cultural geography framework as well as geographers studying communication technologies and infrastructure. Our mission statement reads: The Media and Communication Specialty Group of the AAG strives to enhance geographic research and scholarship on matters relating to media and communication by: (a) encouraging the exchange of ideas among geographers studying technical, social, economic, political, and/or cultural aspects of media and communication, (b) promoting research in topics related to media and communication contexts (infrastructure and institutions) and content (discourses, texts, and images), (c) encouraging reflection on the communicational role and social mission of geographers both in and out of the classroom. In doing so, we support the AAG's mission of advancing professional studies in geography and encouraging the application of geographic research in education, government, and business.

  • News from Media and Communications Geography

    Hello members of the Communication Geography Specialty Group!

    I am excited to be serving as the new Chair of the Communication Geography Specialty Group! We have some exciting news about our group that I would like to officially announce. To better reflect the objectives and goals of this specialty group as well as our diverse scholarly interests, the name of the Communication Geography Specialty Group is being changed to the Media and Communication Geography Specialty Group. The members of the board believe that this name will provide a clearer image of the type of research we do as well as encourage new members to join our group.

    As part of an effort to re-brand and branch out to new members, the Media and Communication Geography Specialty Group is planning on holding a series of sessions at the 2017 annual meeting in Boston. We will be hosting a keynote address as well as a panel on the potential of media and communications geographies in light of the increasingly digital era we find ourselves in. We will also be sponsoring a student paper competition.

    We hope that you, as members of this specialty group, will help to make the AAG in Boston a success! Therefore, we are asking that if anyone has proposed sessions on media and communication topics, please send in the cfps for Media and Communication sponsorship. The board is also happy to help in soliciting for papers to fill your proposed sessions.

    Thank you for your continued support of the Media and Communications Specialty Group!

    -Emily Fekete
