Explorer Classroom | Emily Toner

Emily is a soil geographer, exploring the scientific and cultural significance of soils around the world. For her 2018-2019 Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship, Toner is in Ireland researching and writing about the Irish relationship to peat bogs. Irish peat bogs are rich and unexpectedly political spaces where the carbon density is significant for climate change mitigation. Emily grew up in Iowa and earned a B.S. in agronomy from Iowa State University where she sparked a curiosity in soil, and began to travel the world. In Uganda, she learned that culture drives the framework within which people understand and interact with soil, one of our key natural resources. She deepened her inquiry at the intersection of soil and culture by studying World War II-era Japanese American internment camp gardens for her geography M.S. thesis at the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
