G. Rebecca Dobbs

G. Rebecca Dobbs is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She holds a PhD in Geography from UNC-Chapel Hill, with an emphasis in Historical Geography. Her main research interests focus on the interplay between transportation routes and settlement development, and particularly on how indigenous-origin routes affected the patterns and processes of colonial settlement, town formation, and the emergence of interdependent city-systems. Being something of a “Renaissance person,” however, she has numerous other deep interests, including historical GIS, indigenous peoples, Australia, and the American South. She teaches Historical Geography, Historical GIS, Natural Resources, and other courses as needed; is chair of the Study of the American South Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers; and an active member of the Indigenous Peoples Specialty Group of the same organization; she co-founded the working group HGIS Carolina; and has served as a guest editor on special issues of Geografiska Annaler B and Historical Geography, as well as IJAGR.
