The Wisconsin Geographical Society is a statewide network of professional, academic, student, and novice geographers.  We publish a peer-reviewed online journal, The Wisconsin Geographer.


Website Launch:  The WGS is now online!  This official website of the Wisconsin Geographical Society provides a space for members to post important news and events related to geography in Wisconsin.  It all also includes links to the archives of The Wisconsin Geographer. Please send news updates or suggestions for how the website can be improved to Dr. Jonathan Burkham.

Seeking submissions to The Wisconsin Geographer:  The Wisconsin Geographer is now published online on an ongoing basis.  We encourage high quality Wisconsin-related submissions from faculty, graduate students, and even undergraduates.  Faculty, student collaborations are also encouraged.  The Wisconsin Geographer is a peer-reviewed journal with a much faster turnaround than most publications, so please consider us for your next, or first, publication.

Send manuscripts for consideration for publication in The Wisconsin Geographer to both Jeffrey Zimmerman and Jonathan Burkham.  Formatting for manuscripts should follow the formatting standards of the Annals of the Association of American Geographers.

Upcoming Conference: The West Lakes Division of the American Association of Geographers will be holding their Annual Meeting at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse from November 1-3, 2018.  Click here for more information, including registration and submission guidelines.
