Linda Kosen

UGA Arch

I ground my work in science and technology studies (STS), human geography, and political ecology. I recently returned from fieldwork in Hawaii, where I used ethnographic, spatial, and collaboratory methods to investigate the impact of citizen science on conservation of threatened and endangered species. My other interests include science communication, feminist theory, and visual anthropology.
