Ethics – Young People – Care

I’m an Associate Professor of Geography and Global Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill. My interests are broadly encompassed by the words above – ethics, care, and young people –  often in relation to the production and experience of inequality. Recently I’ve focused my research on understanding historical and contemporary caregiving by young people in the U.S.

I’ve designed this site to make it easier to access things like publications, new projects, old projects, student work, and other ideas. If you are looking for something and don’t see it, or you are interested in something that you see and would like to learn more, please send me an email: eaolson@email.unc.edu
