The American Geographical Society (AGS) is the oldest professional geographical organization in the United States (established in 1851), and was the pre-eminent such society in the 19th century.

Frontiers of femininity : a new historical geography of the nineteenth-century American West by Karen M Morin( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British explorer and professional travel writer Isabella Bird is, to the modern eye, a study in contradictions. One of the premier mountaineers and world explorers of her generation, she was, in 1892, the first woman elected to London's Royal Geographic Society. And yet Bird's books on her travels are filled with depictions of herself and other women that reinforce the "properly feminine" domestic and behavioral codes of her day. In this fascinating and highly original collection of essays, Karen Morin explores the self-expression of travel writers like Bird by giving geographic context to their work." "Drawing from a rich diversity of primary sources, from published travelogues and unpublished archival sources such as letters and diaries to newspaper reportage, Morin considers ways in which women's writing was influenced by the material circumstances of travel in addition to the various social norms that circumscribed female roles. Ranging in scale from the interior of train cars and the homes of these women to the colonial projects of conquering the American West, the author illustrates how geography was fundamental to the formation of women's identity and greatly influenced the gendered and colonialist language found in their writing."--Jacket

Historical geographies of prisons : unlocking the usable carceral past by Karen M Morin( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to provide a comprehensive historical-geographical lens to the development and evolution of correctional institutions as a specific subset of carceral geographies. This book analyzes and critiques global practices of incarceration, regimes of punishment, and their corresponding spaces of "corrections" from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries. It examines individuals' experiences within various regulatory regimes and spaces of punishment, and offers an interpretation of spaces of incarceration as cultural-historical artefacts. The book also analyzes the spatial-distributional geographies of incarceration, particularly with respect to their historical impact on community political-economic development and local geographies. Contributions within this book examine a range of prison sites and the practices that take place within them to help us understand how regimes of punishment are experienced, and are constructed in different kinds of ways across space and time for very different ends."--
Carceral space, prisoners and animals by Karen M Morin( )

6 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carceral Spaces and Animals develops a framework for exploring embodied, geographical, legal, and ethical resonances across human and nonhuman carceral spaces. This book examines the close linkages that can be found across prisoner and animal carcerality and captivity, focusing on their corresponding and parallel disciplinary regimes and structures of violence. Case studies juxtapose four main types of institutions: death row and slaughterhouse; laboratory testing on incarcerated humans and animals, solitary confinement, and sites of exploited labor. The shared structural conditions and inequalities that span species boundaries at these sites are explored theoretically and conceptually, looking at emotional and psychological strain, the geographies of these carceral spaces, legal mechanisms (or the lack of) and the ethical questions that arise when we consider the potential for these sites to become locations of genocide and/or extinction of particular populations"--
