I study historical and contemporary land use and representation, including, environmental and eco-critical art histories, landscape studies, border studies, and arts and cultures of the Americas.

We attended the AWP Conference in April, which was held in Minneapolis, with several staff members and students. Though the conference has grown to over 10,000 participants, Wick had a strong presence at the conference and the book fair where we reconnected with Wick authors, sold word nerd tee shirts, Traveling Stanzas posters and postcards, and Kent State University Press poetry series books. We also spread the word about our interactive Traveling Stanzas exhibits, and showed pictures of our new house and park.
