Global Studies Spotlight

Prof. Charles Fogelman

I'm a new Lecturer & Advisor in Global Studies, and I'm very excited to be able to work with the great students, faculty, and staff in the program. I am trained as a human-environment geographer, and I study the relationships between land and people. My dissertation project focused on land tenure, gender, and authority in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, in Southern Africa. My other research interests include international development, environmental studies, and health geography. As a teacher, I work to make students' own relationships to global processes apparent. From work to school to leisure time, there are global supply chains and hidden politics throughout all of our lives. I received my Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Illinois in 2017. I previously studied at the City University of New York and Marquette University. After finishing my Bachelor’s Degree, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Lesotho.
