Dr. Rossiter is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies. He received his PhD in Geography from York University in Toronto, Canada in 2005. A broadly-trained cultural-historical geographer, Rossiter teaches courses on human geography, geographies of Canada, natural resource spaces, and post-colonial landscapes; his research focuses on contested lands and resources in British Columbia and the US Pacific Northwest. His past research projects have explored the human geographies and political ecologies of: early industrial forestry in BC; anti-logging campaigns in BC; the intersection of aboriginal claims and environmental politics in both BC and Washington State; and the spaces of the BC-WA border. He is currently in the midst of a multi-year research project investigating historical geographies of nature and recreation in the mountainous North Shore region of Vancouver, BC. In the spring of 2011, Rossiter was appointed to a four year term as Editor of American Review of Canadian Studies.
