Research Interests


study the ways people think about resources, capital, and how what we call the economy functions within the larger economy of Earth. I call myself an environmental historian, but my work is related to geography, social ecology, and political theory. Most of my work concerns agrarian societies in North America because I have found that agriculture offers the ideal vantage from which to observe the intersection of ideas and practices, economies and landscapes.
 
I am at work on a book called "Ramp Hollow: Losing Life and Livelihood in Appalachia," about the transformation of the region and its people from subsistence autonomy to dependence on wages.
