Christopher Laingen's Vita

I am interested in rural land-use and human-environment relationships.  My publications focus primarily on agricultural land-use change in the Midwest and Great Plains.  In the classroom, I help students understand their connection to the physical environment around them -- how the decisions they make on a daily basis affect people and places around the world, and how questions are more important than answers.
