Adam H. Fleenor
Professional Title: 
Graduate Student
Research Interests: 

Adam's research interests combine critical pedagogy theory and radical geography to explore Native American counter-mapping instances. Maps are produced by Tribal Nations seeking more control of their lands, government institutions, and cultural assets. Young Native mappers are creating maps to both reconnect to their history and as a way to resist the ongoing colonial project.

Other Research Interests:

  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS), repeat photography, Native landscape management, critical pedagogy, human geography, and sociocultural anthropology.
