As Associate Provost, Karen M. Morin's responsibilities include oversight of the Office of Global & Off-campus Education, Office of Sponsored Projects, Weis Center for the Performing Arts, Samek Art Museum, Bucknell Center for Sustainability & the Environment, Bucknell University Press, Office of Undergraduate Fellowships & Research, the Bucknell-Geisinger Research Initiative, Presidential Fellowships, and special academic programming and colloquia.
A Professor of Geography, Morin's current research focuses on a number of projects related to the spatial violence of prisons and parallels found within critical animal studies. Her book in progress, Carceral Space, Prisoners and Animals (contracted for publication in 2017), develops a framework for exploring the close linkages across human and non-human animal carcerality and captivity via analysis of the prison- agricultural- and medical industrial complexes.
