After earning a B.A. in geography from Ohio State University, Hudson McFann was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to conduct independent research at the University of Toronto, where he studied the inequity of Toronto’s waste exports to Michigan and southwest Ontario. At Gallatin, his concentration is political ecology and ethnographic film, and his research is focused on “the geographies of waste, value and disposability.” A gallery of McFann’s photographs and information on his research can be found on his Web site, www.geographiesofwaste.com. Gallatin, he says, offers “a unique opportunity to integrate my visual interests into my social and scientific interests.” McFann was also awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, which provides three years of support to graduate students studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics. For his thesis project, he is studying the impact of the Khmer Rouge revolution on children in Cambodia, with a focus on how the regime rendered children disposable. McFann plans to work on an ethnographic film in Cambodia, and his plans for the future include a Ph.D. in geography and working as an advocate for post-conflict environmental clean-up and peace.
