Pablo Bose

Associate Professor, Department of Geography

I am a migration scholar and an urban geographer who uses primarily qualitative, interdisciplinary and community-based approaches to conduct my research.  My key interests lie in exploring the complex relationships between people and place and especially in the ways that flows of capital, labour, bodies, and ideas may transform various landscapes.  I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Interim Director of the Global and Regional Studies Program and the Middle East Studies Program at the University of Vermont.  My three major current projects are on three broad topics:

  1. Transnationalism, globalization and urbanization in India
  2. Forced migration related to development and environment across the globe
  3. Refugee resettlement in non-traditional urban sites in North America

Within these areas I conduct research on many sub-topics including

  • Refugee resettlement in the non-traditional destinations in the US
  • Environmentally-induced displacement across the globe
  • Food and migration
  • Transportation and mobility for underserved populations.
