Susan M. Roberts University of Kentucky, USA

Sue Roberts is the Associate Provost for Internationalization and Professor of Geography at Kentucky University. Her interest in why some places and people prosper, and others remain marginal has led to wide ranging, interdisciplinary research interests including anti-development, geopolitics, neoliberalism, trade, hegemony, militarization, security, social theory, and gender.

Sue has won research funding from the National Science Foundation for several projects, and has conducted research in Southern Mexico, the Caribbean, Ireland, and Australia. From 2012-2017, she was North American Editor of the top-ranked journal Progress in Human Geography.

From 2008-2012 she was Chair of the Department of Geography at the University of Kentucky. In 2015-16 she served as Associate Dean for International Affairs in the College of Arts and Sciences and directed the International Studies Program, a popular interdisciplinary undergraduate major.
