Sara Salazar Hughes, PhD (she/her/hers)

A political and cultural geographer by training, I study territorial conflict and land - both societies' connections to land and various means of control over it - primarily in Israel/Palestine. In my research, teaching, and organizing I center love, care, and social and environmental justice. Learn more about my teaching and research on my professional website:
