Mapping the Abstract: Jenny Rice

Most of us associate mapping with cartography, but that's not always the case. The Committee on Social Theory is presenting a graduate-level course on mapping this semester and Jenny Rice, assistant professor in the Division of Writing, Rhetoric and Digital Media, is one of its four instructors. Jeremy Crampton, Jeffrey Peters, and Susan Larson are also teaching sections of the class, each talking about a different aspect of mapping. In this interview, Rice talked about the ways we can 'map' ideas and arguments.

Charting Economic Terrain in Appalachia: Amanda Fickey

Amanda Fickey, a University of Kentucky doctoral candidate was recently granted a year long research fellowship by the Central Appalachian Institute in Research and Development. The Institute, located in Pikeville, Kentucky, focuses heavily on improving educational access and issues of economic development in the Central Appalachian region.

Fickey, an instructor in the Department of Geography as well as in the Appalachian Studies Program while completing her doctoral studies, will spend 2013 as a fellow-in-residence at the institute. There she will focus her research around questions of regional identity and economic development throughout all of Appalachia. The fellowship is the first of its kind for CAIRD and Fickey hopes that her work this coming year will pave the way for other fellows and students to come.
