Welcome to the Middle States Division of the Association of American Geographers Website!

The Middle States Division is a regional subdivision of the Association of American Geographers representing members and geography departments in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Puerto Rico. The MSDAAG exists to advance investigations in geography and to encourage the application of geographic findings in education, government, and business. The Division supports these objectives by organizing an annual academic conference (held in the Fall); distributing an electronic newsletter; publishing an annual peer-reviewed journal (Middle States Geographer) and supporting student paper and poster awards and a World Geography Bowl competition.

Our 2018 Annual Meeting was hosted by Montclair State University from October 26-27, in Montclair, NJ. Learn more about past meetings or read the 2018 Summer Newsletter for recent updates!
