2017 meeting of the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers in New Orleans, January 3-5

Early-bird registration closes in just more than three weeks for the 2017 meeting of the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers (CLAG), scheduled for January 3-5 in New Orleans. Andrew Sluyter observes in a recent message on the CLAG list that,

New Orleans remains one of the most distinctive of American cities, with something for all who enjoy music, food, art, architecture, history, and cultural spectacle. Its boosters once promoted it as the “gateway to Latin America.” The Mexican politician and intellectual Justo Sierra claimed it “is one of those Gulf cities that all seem like sisters, but very large, very developed; Tampico, Veracruz, and Campeche would all fit within it, and it has something of all of them within it, of Veracruz above all.” And since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, its longstanding Hispanic and Latino communities have experienced rapid growth associated with the reconstruction.
