This session is a presentation of finalists for graduate student Peter Gould Prize run by the Health and Medical Geography Specialty Group. These students submitted an extended abstract of a paper that they are either the sole author on or that they have done more than 80% of the work on. From those extended abstracts, these finalists were chosen. The students have since submitted the full papers for a blind peer review and will also present the work in this session, after which a winner will be selected. Papers must be completed in the past 12 months prior to the submission deadline. Papers that were previously submitted for consideration for this award are not eligible. Papers published prior to the abstract deadline will not be considered, which includes successfully defended theses and dissertations. Papers can be either single-authored or co-authored. For co-authored papers, the student should be the first author and responsible for over 80% of the analysis and writing. For a co-authored paper, a statement signed by the student and advisor regarding the student’s contribution (including percentage) is required. Membership in the American Association of Geographers and HMGSG is required. Papers will be judged by the HMGSG Awards Committee on several criteria: originality, scholarship, organization, appropriate use of methodology, written composition, and oral presentation. Finalists are required to present at a 2021 AAG HMGSG sponsored session for the Peter Gould Student Paper Award.
