Bob Kaiser (Geography) retired from UW-Madison in spring 2022 after 26 years of service to the university. Professor Kaiser’s research has explored the intersection of cultural and political geographies, including nationalism, borderlands, and cyberwar. He regularly taught undergraduate and graduate courses in geopolitics and political geography of Russia, Eurasia, and beyond. Serving as faculty director of CREECA from 2001-2004, his wider teaching, research, and public service in the region benefitted innumerable CREECA students and faculty. Pictured here, Professor Kaiser gives remarks at the February 22, 2017 CREECA panel discussion, “Russia and the 2016 U.S. Election: Cyberwar and Prospects for Future Conflict.”
