Professor Hague is a cultural and urban geographer with interests in Confederate commemoration, white racial identities, cultural relationships between Scotland and America, gentrification and urban activism. His work has examined neo-Confederate nationalism and political appropriation of Celtic identities, in particular focusing on the separatist organization, the League of the South, founded in Alabama in 1994. Dr. Hague regularly engages in community-based research and collaboration with local organizations. His recent work includes partnerships with the Pilsen Alliance and AREA-Chicago to examine how Chicago's cultural and urban landscapes have developed historically and are continuing to change.
