I work at the intersection of environmental and economic geography. My primary research interests span political economy, political ecology, environmental studies, and resource management. I conduct research in both the ‘developing’ and ‘developed’ world, and consequently have an interest in debates over postcolonialism and development.
I’m mainly interested in the history of twentieth-century geography. I am especially concerned with the work of geographers during periods of war (both hot and cold). Recently, I’ve also examined war protestors, in particular, the American geographer, Bill Bunge, and part of a larger project to write a history of radical geography. A jointly edited volume with Eric Sheppard on Spatial histories of North American radical geography is in preparation and will be published in 2019. An ‘alternative’ economic geography textbook, Economic Geography: A Critical Introduction, that I co-wrote with Brett Christophers (Uppsala University) was published in 2018.
