Dr. Karl Offen, Associate Professor of Geography, was recently published in Progress in Human Geography, a top journal for the industry


Abstract - In my second report discussing the state of historical geography, I review some of the ways historical geographers have made use of digital technologies and digital media. I also highlight how digital data, research, and presentation are affecting related humanities disciplines and inspiring their practitioners to engage more fully with geographic concepts of space, place, and cartography. I argue that information technologies and digital media can deepen the place of historical geography in the academy and in the public's eye.

NORMAN, OK – To meet the growing need for professionals with advanced knowledge of environmental sustainability who can guide Oklahoma and the world in the effective management of the natural environment, a new master’s degree has been launched at the University of Oklahoma.
