Bennett has conducted fieldwork on bridges both real and imagined in the Russian Far East, on a new highway to the Arctic Ocean in Canada’s Northwest Territories, atop the melting Greenland Ice Sheet, and inside air-conditioned offices in Singapore. Her research has been published in journals such as World Development, Political Geography, Annals of the American Association of Geographers, and Remote Sensing of Environment, and has been supported by generous grants from the Regional Studies Association, National Science Foundation, and International Council for Canadian Studies, among others. Bennett is passionate about making research about the Arctic accessible and meaningful to wider audiences, and is founder and editor of a long-running blog on the region, Cryopolitics. Her work in this area has been recognized by the Richard Morrill Public Outreach Award from the AAG’s Political Geography Specialty Group.
