Economic Geography
Research in economic geography is focused on economic diversity and economic development. Julie Graham's research includes inventorying the hidden and alternative economies in Massachusetts, Australia, and the Asia Pacific region; theorizing economic diversity, including non-market transactions, non-wage labor, and non-capitalist enterprises; action research aimed at identifying and constructing economic alternatives; local strategies for creating economic security in the face of globalization; building on existing economies of care and generosity; creating a website on sustainability best practices in the Pioneer Valley ( ) and rethinking economy and economic possibility (see Community Economies). Stan Stevens is working on tourism development and management in the Mt. Everest region of Nepal; Himalayan agriculture, pastoralism, and forest use; and the management of forest and rangeland commons. Jim Hafner maintains interests in the political economy of natural resource (forest) use and management, and international contract labor in Southeast Asia.

Urban Geography
Urban form is never innocent of social content: it is the matrix within which we organize daily life...Spiro Kostof, 1991

The Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst offers students an opportunity to explore the spatial structure and dynamics of urban regions throughout the world by offering a series of courses in urban geography and related subjects. Faculty: Our urban courses emphasize both breadth of theory and methodology, and the depth of historical perspectives and multi-disciplinary approaches. Student interested in urban geography have the opportunity to take the following core courses for the urban geography program:

We will explore urban forms and processes as they are shaped by, and as they shape, their social, cultural, economic and physical contexts. As a survey of world urbanism, the course will cover topics ranging from urban genesis and the characteristics of pre-industrial cities, to the challenges facing cities and city dwellers in both developed and developing countries today. As an introduction to urban geographical analysis, the course will address the wide range of theoretical and methodological approaches utilized by urban geographers.

high temperatures on a given day in the United States to reach 70 degrees Fahrenheit (about 40 degrees Celsius). The United States owes much of its national character and its wealth to its good fortune in having such a large and varied landmass to inhabit and cultivate. Yet the country still exhibits marks of regional identity, and one way Americans cope with the size of their country is to think of themselves as linked geographically by certain traits, such as New England self-reliance, southern hospitality, midwestern wholesomeness, western mellowness. This chapter examines American geography, history, and customs through the filters of six main regions:
  • New England , made up of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
  • The Middle Atlantic , comprising New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Maryland.
  • The South , which runs from Virginia south to Florida and west as far as central Texas. This region also includes West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, and parts of Missouri and Oklahoma.
  • The Midwest , a broad collection of states sweeping westward from Ohio to Nebraska and including Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, parts of Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, and eastern Colorado.

MA The colony was named after a local Indian tribe whose name means "a large hill place." Massachusetts was one of the six New England states, and one of the first 13 states in the Union (it entered in 1788). The Pilgrims established their settlement at Plymouth in 1620, arriving on the "Mayflower". They were Puritans, who established the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The birthplace of many of the ideals of the American Revolution, Massachusetts attracted people who believed in self-government. Massachusetts is the sixth smallest state of the United States but it stands among the leaders in many fields. Universities in and around Boston help make the area one of the world's great cultural, educational, medical and research centers. Historic sites date back to the Pilgrims, to colonial witchcraft trials, and to the Revolutionary War. Skiing brings many visitors to the Berkshire Hills and to other parts of the state. The Atlantic Ocean and many lakes and rivers also attract water sports enthusiasts.

Travel to the United States

The Regions of the United States New England The Mid-Atlantic The South The Midwest ... The West Americans often speak of their country as one of several large regions. These regions are cultural units rather than governmental units formed by history and geography and shaped by the economics, literature and folkways that all the parts of a region share. What makes one region different from another? A region's multicultural heritage as well as distinct demographic characteristics like age and occupation also make regions different and special. Within several regions, language is used differently and there are strong dialects. There are also differences in outlook and attitude based on geography.

New England has played a dominant role in American history. Until well into the 19th century, New England was the country's cultural and economic center. The earliest European settlers of New England were English Protestants who came in search of religious liberty. They gave the region its distinctive political format town meetings (an outgrowth of meetings held by church elders) in which citizens gathered to discuss issues of the day. Town meetings still function in many New England communities today and have been revived as a form of dialogue in the national political arena. New England is also important for the cultural contribution it has made to the nation. The critic Van Wyck Brooks called the creation of a distinctive American literature, in the first half of the 19th century, "the flowering of New England." Education is another of the region's strongest legacies. The cluster of top-ranking universities and colleges in

Explain to the students that the colonies can be divided by the region of the Atlantic coast in which they are located. Display the transparency of the map showing the thirteen colonies. Point to the following terms at the bottom of the transparency: New England, Middle Atlantic, and Southern. Tell the students that the New England colonies were made up of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Encircle the group of colonies that made up New England using a green marker to trace the borders of the colonies that should be included. Make a green mark in the box next to the words, New England. Do the same using different color markers for the Middle Atlantic colonies: New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania; and the Southern colonies: Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia.

Colonies map (attached) Procedure
Ask the students to recall that the first settlers traveled on ships to reach the New World and formed colonies along the east coast of what is now the United States. Remind the students that the Atlantic coast also had many bays which made it easy for ships to come close to shore. Ask: What is the definition of a bay? (An inlet of the ocean partly surrounded by land.)
Review with the students that two important bays to the colonists were the Chesapeake Bay and the Massachusetts Bay. Have two students locate the bays on the classroom U. S. map. Point out the way the land partly surrounds the water to form the bay.
Remind the students that colonial towns were built close to the water because access to a port was very important. Ask: Why were ports important to the development of a colonial town? (Major towns and cities had to have access to ships bringing people and goods to and from Europe.)
Give a map of the New England and Middle Atlantic Colonies to each student. Ask students to name all the colonial cities located on the Atlantic Ocean or a bay (Boston, MA; Plymouth, MA; Baltimore, MD; Williamsburg, VA; Jamestown, VA). Write the name of the city and the colony on the board as students name them. Remind the students that these cities were important in the development of trade because of their closeness to the ocean.
