My recent research has engaged with the question: How does geography relate to the cultural history of a place?  This research combines the natural history of a location with its cultural (human) history in a complementary fashion.  This research, "A Biography of Place," is being conducted as a joint project by the Stevenson Public History Program and the Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
