About Barney Warf

P_A82716_WarfBarney_09281_Best_95x120px
Barney Warf is a professor of Geography at the University of Kansas. His research and teaching interests lie within the broad domain of human geography. Much of his research concerns producer services and telecommunications, particularly the geographies of the internet, including the digital divide, e-government, and internet censorship. He views these topics through the lens of political economy and social theory. One interest concerns time-space compression, or how societies fold time and space in different ways. He maintains an active interest in political geography, including elections, voting technologies, and the U.S. electoral college. He has also studied a range of topics that fall under the umbrella of globalization, such as international producer services, fiber optics, the satellite industry, offshore banking, electronic funds transfer, military spending, and religious diversity. More recently he has studied the geographies of corruption. He has authored, co-authored, or co-edited nine books, three encyclopedias, 65 book chapters, and roughly 110 refereed journal articles. Currently, he serves as editor of Geojournal and co-editor of Growth and Change, editor-in-chief for geography for Oxford Bibliographies On-Line, and edits a series of geography texts for Rowman and Littlefield. His teaching interests include urban and economic geography, the history of geographic thought, globalization, and contemporary social theory.
