Featured Faculty Member for February: - Dr. KATIE ALGEO is a cultural geographer who joined the WKU faculty in 2001 to teach a variety of human geography and GIS classes. Her research interests include tourism, rural development, agricultural geography (particularly recent change in the Burley Tobacco Belt), interfaces between folk and popular culture, the role that media places in the representation and formation of cultural identities, and Appalachian development. Her current project explores the historical geography of tourism to Mammoth Cave and looks both at economic development accompanying tourism and ways in which Mammoth Cave was "symbolically constructed" to appeal to tourists. She is treasurer of the Southeastern Division of the Association of American Geographers (SEDAAG), and her work has appeared in the Journal of Geography, Southern Cultures, Southeastern Geographer, and Names.
