PhD, Geography, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Dr. Matthew Anderson is an assistant professor in the Geography and Anthropology Department at Eastern Washington University, and teaches introductory courses in human geography, cartography, and upper-division seminars in urban studies, political geography, and natural resource management. Dr. Anderson obtained his PhD in geography from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and holds an MA in geography and environmental studies from Northeastern Illinois University. His research interests are focused on the political economy of the contemporary North American city, the politics of water provision in the American northwest, and critical social and spatial theory. His research has examined the politics of urban governance, resistence to gentrification, and the dynamics of rent in Chicago, with current projects focused on the environmental impacts of oil and gas production in eastern Montana and the dynamics of water resource management in Montana's Yellowstone River Basin. In each case, he examines emergence and evolution, particularly in terms of the ways in which governing actors respond to rapidly changing socio-political conditions and economic realities.
