Human and Physical Geographers Together
Mona DOMOSH & Frank MAGILLIGAN
Přijďte s feministickou geografkou a geomorfologem diskutovat o trendech v současné geografii, jejích subdisciplínách i o tom, na čem pracujete vy.
Úterý 25. května, 17:00, Korčákova posluchárna (LR)
I am particularly interested in four main areas: Exploring the cultural processes and practices of early (pre 1920) United States-based globalization. Examining in what ways ideas of femininity, masculinity, consumption, and "whiteness" played into the crucial shift from American nation-building to empire-building during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Understanding the connections between gender, class and the cultural formation of large American cities in the 19th century, particularly in regard to such critical but vexing distinctions as consumption/production, public/private, masculine/feminine. Exploring feminist perspectives, theory, and methodology in relationship to matters of space and place.
My research interests focus primarily on fluvial geomorphology and surface water hydrology. In particular, my research addresses stream channel and watershed response to environmental change -- whether the change is generated by natural (e.g. climate change) or anthropogenic (e.g. agriculture, grazing, or logging) causes. My main research interests have been on the response and recovery of stream channels to either large floods or watershed disturbance, and I have recently become especially interested in the links between channel processes and riparian ecology. In particular, most of my research over the past few years has concentrated on the hydro-ecological impacts of dams.
