The relationship between the Temple University Press and the discipline of geography goes back to the founding of the Press in 1969. Since that time the Press has continued to publish important and innovative work on current social issues. The publications in geography are focused on urban, political, and human geography.

Today, the geographic works published by the Temple University Press are recognized with major awards, from a wide variety of organizations. Two recent publications in geography were awarded the “Outstanding Academic Title” by Choice Magazine. Urban Studies titles have received awards from major academic and professional organizations in Anthropology, History, Sociology, Urban Studies and Planning, among others.

For their long-term commitment to publishing excellent research in geography, we honor the Temple University Press with the AAG Publication Award.
