Born and raised in New England, Tyler Sonnichsen completed his Bachelor of Science Degree in Television-Radio-Film at Syracuse University, minoring in Geography and Spanish. He developed interests in media and culture from an early age, and spent a long time working at a radio public relations firm in Washington, DC before moving to Long Beach, CA to pursue his MA in Geography.
He is currently a Lecturer and PhD candidate in the Geography Department at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. He completed his MA at California State University, Long Beach in 2013. He has focused on emotional geographies, cultural geography, collective concepts of place and space, public memory, gender, and music. His research so far has focused on dynamics of hostile space, bodily comportment, and (as this site indicates) intersections of place, culture, media, and memory.
