Clark’s Professor Hanson Honored for Creativity in Geography

Monday, December 15, 2014

 

Susan Hanson

Susan Hanson, a University Professor Emerita and former Director of Graduate School Geography at Clark University has been awarded the Association of American Geographers 2015 AAG Stanley Brunn Award for Creativity in Geography.

The National Academy of Sciences member was recognized for scholarship that “challenged the field of transportation geography by bringing to the fore how difference – understood as gendered, classed and racialized – matters in people’s mobility, job opportunities, and access to services. By so doing, her research literally re-wrote the textbook on urban transportation geography. She has deepened these insights by extending her research into the gendered character of local labor markets, women’s entrepreneurship and the role of networks in enabling and constraining women.” 

Hanson is among five other Graduate School of Geography (GSG) faculty members named to the National Academy of Sciences while appointed at Clark University including : Robert Kates, Roger Kasperson, B.L. Turner and Anthony Bebbington. 

Professor Hanson received her Ph.D. from Northwestern University, and was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kenya before attending graduate school. She has edited four geography journals – Urban Geography, Economic Geography, the Annals of the Association of American Geographers, and The Professional Geographer – and has been the geography editor for the International Encyclopedia of the Social and Behavioral Sciences, first and second editions. She serves on the editorial boards of several journals including Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.
