Ingolf Vogeler was born in northern Germany, raised in southern Canada, and earned a Ph.D. in the Midwestern United States. As a human geographer, I specialize in rural areas and cultural landscapes and have taught at three universities, since 1977 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I have (co)authored and (co)edited five books, published six chapters and 43 articles on topics ranging from village types in Germany, U.S. agriculture, and militarized international borders to cultural diversity topics, dialectical thinking, and web-based teaching methods. I (co)edited the Journal of Geography and edited 19 U.S. state geography books in the Westview Press series. I also gave 47 presentations at professional meetings, 18 public lectures, conducted 11 workshops, and wrote 30 book reviews. I have traveled in over 100 past, present, and wannabe countries. I am happiest when travelling and learning about geography. This web site documents the best of my fascination with geography, travel, teaching, research, and publications. Email:
