Kyle T. Evered, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Geography Department of Geography, Environment, & Spatial Sciences, Michigan State University. Trained to study geographies of the Middle East and North Africa and the former Soviet states of Eurasia, most of Kyle Evered's research deals with topics associated with geographies of Turkey and its neighboring states.  In particular, he has published on the cultural and historical geographies, political geographies, and cultural ecologies of the country and its wider regions.  Some of his recent research concerns include geographies of the opium poppy, of health and wellbeing, and identity-place constructs (such as nationalism, territoriality, and regionalism).
