Bodies of Work

Proving Ground

Medical Humanities Initiative


My current research project is Proving Ground: Expertise and Appalachian Landscapes. The work examines outsiders' attempts to use the eastern upcountry to claim professional authority. I study five figures and five mountain places across the twentieth century and focus on the fields of scenic preservation, regional planning, outdoor recreation, anthropology, and photography.
