2 faculty members named editors of journal ‘FOCUS on Geography’

Two WKU faculty members — Dr. Margaret “Peggy” Gripshover, assistant professor of Cultural Geography, and Dr. Tom Bell, adjunct professor of Cultural Geography — have been appointed as the new editors of the journal FOCUS on Geography.

Published by the American Geographical Society through Wiley-Blackwell, FOCUS is a 40-page, full-color quarterly journal with articles written by well-known academic and professional geographers, in-depth theme sections, maps and photos, and special country issues.

Written and edited by geographers, FOCUS has provided geographical analysis and perspective since 1950 in a relaxed and readable style for a wide audience that includes P-12 teachers, the business community, professional geographers, and the general public.  The editorial team will produce four issues of the journal each year for the next three years.

Dr. David Keeling, head of WKU’s Department of Geography and Geology and a member of the AGS Board of Councilors, noted that “Peggy and Tom were the unanimous choice of the editorial search committee, as they have significant academic publishing experience and are well known in cultural geography circles. The department is delighted to support them in this important endeavor and looks forward to a successful editorial experience.”
