2018-19 Graduate Student Publications

Geography graduate students publish in a wide range of academic and non-academic venues from Transactions in GIS to GeoHumanities. To celebrate the diversity of the discipline and the accomplishment of our graduate students, we’ve compiled a digest of our 2018-19 publications!

If you have a 2018-19 publication to add to this list, please email it to Carly Griffith at cgriffith5@wisc.edu.
