World geography; geographic thought; regionalization; interdisciplinary geography; political geography; cultural geography.
I have always considered myself a generalist; other recognized fields in which I take a strong interest include linguistics, political science, history, and philosophy. Research interests outside of geography include recent history and current events, writing systems, native names, ethics, and metaphysics.
My primary concern is regionalization in human geography at the global scale. Additional concerns are the regionalization process in general, including physical and historical applications, and geographic names.
