  • Area of Study: ENS Environmental Policy

Personal Statement
Katie obtained a BA in Liberal Studies, BA in Modern Languages & Literatures, and Minor in History at Montana State University, where she was first exposed to research. Her passions include social justice and national parks, and she hopes to form her post-graduate research around the biases in historical representation and promotional media in Adirondack Park. When she’s not reading journal after journal, she enjoys kayaking, scenic walks, analyzing French literature, and cuddling with her bossy cat.

Graduate Research Topic
The thematic area will include the presentation of Adirondack Park history by various institutions and subpublics throughout the Syracuse area; in doing so, I will identify common perceptions of Park history that may or may not contribute to exclusionary visitation experiences, as well as the limitation of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) representation.
