Tyra A. Olstad, Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability, published a creative non-fiction essay in the Spring 2017 print edition of “The Hopper”, an environmental literary magazine from Green Writers
Press (http://www.hoppermag.org/in-print). Olstad’s essay, “Topophilia”, expands upon humanist geographer Yi-Fu Tuan’s notion of topophilia — love of place — to describe how relationships with wild landscapes can become crucial parts of personal identity.
