About Professor Keul

Dr. Keul serves as the new director for the BA in Tourism Management and Policy. He is trained as a tourism geographer and his research focuses on the production of tourism spaces at the confluence of land and water. He has written about tourism and geography covering a variety of topics including: black bears in Texas, large swamps in the US South, beaches on the New England coast, and resource development in the globalized Arctic. Throughout his research he applies critical theories addressing political economy and ecology. Alongside his academic and administrative duties, Keul also coaches pole vault for the PSU track team.
