Jason Holcomb has been at MSU since 2000 and has taught a wide variety of classes since his arrival.  He grew up on a farm in Iowa and earned his degrees at the University of Kansas and Kansas State University.  His primary research interests include migration, land use, cultural geography, the Great Plains, and grassland environments.  He recently spent a sabbatical ding an oral history project with custom wheat harvesters of the Great Plains, funded by grants from Morehead State and the Kansas Humanities Council.  This involved travel to Minnesota, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma to interview both current and retired custom harvesters.  He is also researching international labor employed in custom harvesting and other American agribusinesses.  He enjoys traveling anywhere, but typically heads west when the opportunity comes along

"I'm glad that I chose Morehead due to such small class sizes. All of my teachers know me by name and are concerned enough to know their students as people. I can go to any of my professors outside of class and feel comfortable talking to them, even if it's a random encounter at the theatre or coffee shop."
