Geography professor to showcase new book Oct. 26

Eric Magrane, assistant professor in the Department of Geography, has published an edited book, "Geopoetics in Practice," in Routledge’s Research in Culture, Space and Identity Series. Gathering 24 essays of an international cohort whose work converges at the crossroads of poetics and the material world, "Geopoetics in Practice" offers insights into poetry, place, ecology and writing the world through a critical-creative geographic lens. Magrane, his co-editors and selected contributors will discuss the book in a virtual event from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Monday, Oct. 26, on Zoom. This event is open to the public and also coincides with a new seminar on the geohumanities that Magrane has designed and is teaching this fall at NMSU that focuses on the growing intersections between geography and the humanities. For more information on the event, contact Magrane at

Department of Geography Statement on Social Justice

Addressing current and potential future societal and environmental challenges requires approaches that integrate human, natural, and information sciences rather than approaches that apply each individually. Geography is all about developing and using such integrative approaches to make the world a better place. Learn what geography is and what you can do with it.
