About Katherine Morrissey
I research, teach and publish in the related areas of cultural, environmental, borderlands/Southwest and north American West history. I pursue my interdisciplinary interests as a faculty affiliate of Arid Lands Resource Sciences (Graduate Interdisciplinary Program), Gender and Women's Studies Department, Global Change (Graduate Interdisciplinary Program), Institute of the Environment, and the Southwest Land, Culture and Society Program (Anthropology).
Areas of Study
United States History, Environmental History
As a cultural historian of the North American West, I use my interdisciplinary training in American Studies to study the complexities involved in the modern cultural transformations of this diverse region from the late 19th through the 20th century. In my scholarship I employ analytical approaches from cultural studies, environmental history and gender studies, to explore the historical interplay between material practices and mental constructions. In particular studies, I explore how sets of ideas and meanings reciprocally shape, and are shaped by, material circumstances at the local and regional levels.
