Placing Autobiography in Geography
Syracuse University Press, 2001 - Science - 235 pages
Chronicling the history of geography entails not only the literature emerging from geographers' pens and printers but also the geographers themselves. Why and how geographers have taken the career paths they have taken is as much importance as their scholarly output.The contributors use autobiography as a tool to document the history of geography, as a method of data collection, or as a mode of analysis. Taken together, their work provides empirical examples of the ways geographer are engaging the critical questions raised by the changes in their field.
