Dr. Abby Hickox

I received my PhD in Geography from the University of Colorado in 2012.  My research falls within the environment-society and human geography subfields, and it addresses the complicated overlap between environmentalism, progressive politics, and racism in Boulder, Colorado.  I am most interested in understanding how the multifaceted identity norms in Boulder shape the politics of belonging in the city.  I love teaching geography because it brings together questions about environment, culture, social inequality, global political economy, and justice.
