I am a cultural and historical geographer focusing on the heritage of place, particularly as it becomes manifest through commemoration, place naming, and sense of place. I have published chapters in the books Company Towns in the Americas, Social Memory and Heritage Tourism Methodologies, and Explorations in Place Attachment, and in the journals Geoforum, Area, Professional Geographer, Geographical Review, Journal of Cultural Geography, Journal of Geography, and Historical Geography. I serve on the board of the International Society of Landscape, Place, and Material Culture and chaired the Cultural Geography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers.
