Books

Work on World Geography Today was an unpleasant and disheartening introduction to the world of professional publishing. The rest was fun.


Monographs

The most important of the monographs is Wood’s notorious Clark University doctoral dissertation, I Don’t Want To, But I Will (1973).


Papers

Doubting that Wood’s work could survive a peer review, the editors who published his papers managed to find other ways of doing so.


Polemics

In 1981 Denis, Vernon Shogren, and Paul Tesar, soon joined by Spencer Wolfe – all at the time members of the faculty of the School of Design at North Carolina State University – thought it was time for a biweekly pamphlet in which to articulate thoughts and opinions circulating through the school. As it turned out, it was too late to stop the movement backwards toward the 1950s sensibility the school would henceforth resolutely reassume. Denis had regularly been asked for copies of his piece, “Thoughts of a Dishes Washer,” and in the mid-1980s he put together this collection of his contributions. A recent request for the piece prompts this posting of “Denis Wood in Polemics.”


Reviews

Journals often published Wood’s longer reviews as articles. If you don’t find it here, try in the papers section, especially for films.

   

Poetry

For years Wood merged his poetry with his practice as a geographer, and read poetry instead of academic papers at professional meetings.
