In this panel session, the Ethnic Geography Specialty Group honors Dr. Heather Smith with the Distinguished Scholar Award for 2019. Dr. Smith's prolific scholarship has covered a diverse array of issues in the areas of Ethnic Geography including Latino settlement in new gateways, immigrant receptivity and adjustment, polarization, participatory and action research among other interests. In her presentation, "(De)Constructing my Geographic Knowledge: Reflections from a conflicted and still evolving scholar", Professor Smith speaks on the acquisition and evolution of her geographic knowledge and how her current work as a community engaged scholar draws from varied (sometimes contested) research traditions and approaches in the study of immigrant and ethnic groups and the urban and social contexts that shape their lives.
