The semester begins, and a virtual special issue on Political Geographies of Childhood and Youth

The semester has started here at Ohio Wesleyan and I’ve now met all three of my classes. I am teaching introductory Cultural Geography, advanced Economic Geography, and an undergraduate seminar in Urban Geography. In addition to the typical reading/discussion format of a seminar, Urban Geography will involve substantial fieldwork in Columbus, Ohio. Alongside David Bernstein (History at Denison University), I am experimenting with pedagogical applications of ‘Exploring Columbus,’ a Mellon Foundation supported project managed by John Krygier (Geography at Ohio Wesleyan).

I also continue to write, and — among other things — am in the midst of revising an article for Space and Polity on the problem of inclusion for political geographies of young people. A recent virtual special issue of Political Geography provides additional references for an elaborated version of what was once a short paper.
