Area of Concentration:

Human-Social Development & Education

Define culture and the role it plays in social and ecomomic development; and how it is embedded in the geographies of particular places and regions. Tie culture to human development. "Asset Building and Community Development"  has a great chapter on "Cultural Capital."  Getting our culture sorted out is a huge part of the sustainablity challenge  we face (consumerism feeding a bloated and overreaching materialism, anomie at least partly associated with how we arrange our human habitat, ethnocentrism, not to mention other things like rooted in racism,  etc)

Multiculturalism worldwide, global consumer culture, status of human development
