Professor Jamie Peck has been awarded the 2020 AAG Distinguished Scholarship Award by the American Association of Geographers.
The honour recognizes Prof. Peck’s “foundational and sustained contributions to the field of economic geography and to human geography, more broadly.”
Of the award the AAG noted: “Over three decades, he has published transformative work on the dynamics of neoliberalization, the economic transformation of urban governance, the history of economic geography, changing labor markets and regulation, and policy mobilities.
“Peck’s extraordinary scholarship is matched by an extraordinary record of service to the field as an editor and mentor. In his remarkable and ongoing run as editor at Antipode and Environment and Planning A, and now as lead editor of the five Environment and Planning journals, he has shaped the intellectual conversation across Human Geography for decades.”
The award will be presented at the AAG’s conference in Denver, Colorado in April 2020.
