Hello world!

I am an #assistantprofessor in the Department of Geography at Texas State University. You can find me on Twitter @drhiner or on ResearchGate at Colleen Hiner.

I am a rural geographer and political ecologist with specialties in land and environmental management; (ex)urbanization; (rural) sustainability and tourism; wine,  beer, and cider geographies (or what I like to call “fermented landscapes“); and agriculture, inclusive of urban, peri-urban, and “local”.

During Summer 2016, I will lead a course to central Italy for four weeks to examine the topics of “Rural sustainability” and the “Geography of food and agriculture”. Recruitment is still open, so please contact me for more information!
