Mackenzie Cramblit


I am a 5th-year PhD candidate motivated by questions of intimacy, care and value in relation to rural places. I am interested in understanding what constitutes an "environment," how environments are made livable, and how we become attached to each other in their midst. My dissertation approaches these ideas through a study of a remote community and "wild" landscape on the West Coast of Scotland.
