CLAG understands those conditions through the interconnections and interdependencies  with other peoples and places. CLAG believes that scholarly inquiry can make invaluable contributions to society and to the well- being of Latin Americans and North Americans alike 󲀔 wherever they may live. CLAG believes that academic freedom, without fear, intimidation, or threats is a necessary condition for that scholarship and the mutual understanding that it fosters.  󰀳 Table of Contents 56234684113140167191209 Leer From the Editor 󰁁󰁲󰁴󰁩󰁃󰁌󰁥󰁳 New Geographies of China and Latin America Relations: Introduction to the Special Issue  Julie Michelle Klinger & Tom Narins Imagining and Linking Latin America: Chinese Regional Mobilities and Social Networks in Chile Carol Chan  A Brief History of Outer Space Cooperation Between Latin America and China  Julie Michelle Klinger  Beanstalks and Trust in Chinese and Brazilian Food Systems  Adrian H.

Ribeiro  親愛的同事們,  A few years ago I was wandering through the Saara region of Rio de Janeiro in the late af-ternoon and stopped to have an esfiha  in a tra-ditional Syrian eatery. 󰀀e young girl behind the counter was clearly Han Chinese and spoke just enough Portuguese to facilitate our transaction. As I was happily munching away, I looked down a row of stores selling the myriad shimmering and feathery things necessary for Carnaval. 󰀀e stores were clos-ing and each metal curtain was pulled down  by a young Chinese person. From the park-ing garages emerged a series of rather expen-sive cars driven by Chinese  patresfamilias  , the new dons of the Carnaval trade in Rio.󰀀is insignificant moment in Rio’s vibrant commercial district got me thinking about the ways in which Latin America and China are interconnected beyond the production and consumption of consumer goods. 󰀀e retreat of the United States fro the region has opened opportunities for Chinese invest-ment in infrastructure, technology, and political interaction. A number of academic  journals have produced special issues that explore the relationships between Latin  America and China but none have taken the explicitly geographic perspective that  we offer in this Special Issue on China and Latin American Relations. Our guest editors  Julie Klinger and Tom Narins have worked closely with Associate Editor Jorn Seemann to bring together a wonderful array of stories, perspectives, and ideas that give us ample food for thought about this enduring and dynamic interchange. As part of our ongoing efforts to mod-ernize and expand the reach of JLAG, we have included Chinese abstracts for the first time. We hope that this will allow the jour-nal to reach new audiences and stimulate interchange between Latin American and Chinese geographers. Additionally, we con-tinue to direct ever more resources to editing and production and continue to seek avenues for innovation and engagement with geogra-phers throughout the Americas and beyond.It is fiing, therefore, that this is the first issue of JLAG that will be published under the aegis of the “new CLAG.” 󰀀e removal of the “ista” nomenclature from CLAG was an overdue recognition that the organiza-tion is not only a home for North American geographers who study Latin America, but rather a place of encounter and exchange  between and for all Latin American Geogra-phers regardless of srcin or residence. As the Conference of Latin American Geography approaches its 󰀵󰀰th year, the editorial team at JLAG would like to renew our call to all of our Latin American colleagues to contribute to the growth of the journal through which  we can foster debate, promote change, and develop lasting relationships. 好利潤! Christopher Gaffney Editor-in-Chief  Leer From the Editor
