Caroline Tracey

I study the American Southwest and the spaces to which it is, and has long been, connected through ecology, economy, human movement, and politics. My dissertation project focuses on humanitarian responses to migrant death in South Texas, which are political, hemispheric, and intimate. 

Additional interests include agriculture and rangelands, environmental history and environmental racism in arid and semi-arid environments, literature, and writing. I maintain personal and professional commitments to Southern and Eastern Colorado and the Central Valley of California, and previously held a Fulbright fellowship to Kyrgyzstan, where I researched changes to pasture law.
