In January 2019, the American Association of Geographers announced the recipients of AAG Awards. After receiving a 2019 AAG Honors recognition, Eaves has also been selected for the 2019 Enhancing Diversity Award.
2019 Enhancing Diversity Award
The AAG Enhancing Diversity Award honors those geographers who have pioneered efforts toward, or actively participate in efforts towards encouraging a more diverse discipline.
LaToya Eaves, Middle Tennessee State University
Dr. LaToya Eaves has worked with unflagging determination to bring emancipatory geography to the forefront of the discipline through institutional advocacy, mentorship, community engagement, and, of course, intellectual production. Her cutting-edge scholarship engages and informs racial, gendered, and sexual dimensions of identity and politics.
Dr. Eaves works actively on many fronts to create a more inclusive academy. Her commitment to establish the Black Geographies Specialty Group and her generous support of other specialty groups serving under-represented groups of geographers are widely applauded. One of her colleagues noted: “The time and energy [she] has dedicated to the discipline and the AAG is a key reason why many graduate students and faculty are engaging in Black Geographies thought and why a number of Geography departments are advertising for scholars whose research is grounded in Black Geographies.”
