The Association of American Geographers (AAG) will confer their most prestigious distinction on President Meric Gertler next spring, awarding him the 2014 Distinguished Scholarship Honor for outstanding contributions to the advancement of geography.

“Meric Gertler is an unusually creative scholar whose large body of published work is wide ranging and widely cited,” said Richard A. Marston, chair of the Committee for Annual Honors of the AAG. “His papers have been genuinely path-breaking, providing a firm analytical and empirical foundation for understanding the evolution of Canadian and American regional systems over the 20th century.”
