Jameson KarnsTerm: Summer 2016


My research and professional experience explore modern North American land management agencies and the role they have on environmental sciences and the environment. I am interested in the development of these sciences and their implementation on the land. My scholarship also covers the social, cultural, and political impact of land management. Specifically, I am interested in the training and mentoring that Gifford Pinchot and others received in Europe.


“In Summer, 2016, I’ve received three major fellowships to live in Europe for a year. My goal here is to retrace the steps of Gifford Pinchot while he was receiving his education. Currently, I am in Germany.”
