SEDAAG meetings occur every November, but the benefits of
membership in this organization extend throughout the year….The SEDAAG
Committee on the Status of Women in Geography has been especially
helpful in meeting and networking with other women in the Southeast
region. We gather at the annual meetings and organize sessions around
teaching, balancing work and family, common research themes, and other
aspects of being a female in the discipline of geography.
--Ann Oberhauser, West Virginia University
Like most geographers, I have global interests far beyond my
own backyard. But like many geographers, much of my research is close
to home, and I like to keep my teaching informed by trends and examples
from the region that my students can relate to. Being a member of
SEDAAG helps me make and maintain contacts with others working in the
South, and keep up to speed on the region. SEDAAG is also a good tool
for graduate student recruiting.
--Jonathan Phillips, University of Kentucky
SEDAAG has long been recognized for its scholarship,
collegiality, and opportunities for students and faculty to showcase
their interests and talents through a broad array of topics and
methods. I especially value the organization’s multi-disciplinary and
inter-disciplinary vision, high quality journal, Southeastern Geographer, and its annual meetings. The affordability of membership is considerable.
