About

Nic Crane, studio portraitsThis is the work blog of Dr. Nicholas Jon Crane, an Assistant Professor of Geography and International Studies in the School of Politics, Public Affairs, and International Studies (SPPAIS) at the University of Wyoming.

I received my PhD in Geography from the Ohio State University in 2014, where I wrote a dissertation on memory and youth political engagement in Mexico City. My current research generally examines cultural and political geographies of social injustice and social mobilization. My most recent publications have focused on the cultural politics and political economy of violence in Mexico in the context of the Americas.

In addition to my appointment in SPPAIS, I am affiliated faculty with University of Wyoming programs in American Studies and Latinx Studies, and I am a member of the University’s Council on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. I am also the Section Editor for political geography in the journal Geography Compass. I welcome proposals for the journal.

I am interested to advise graduate students in cultural geography, political geography, and cultural studies, or on themes in the regional geography of Latin America or the Middle East.

I have academia.edu, researchgate, and scholar.google profiles on which some of my work is available to read. Feel free to contact me by email: ncrane@uwyo.edu.
