- Professor McNeil's fieldwork since 2000 has been based in southern West Virginia. It focuses on social and community activism surrounding mountaintop removal coal mining. He incorporates themes of social movements, political and historical ecology, environmental justice, and various forms of practice theory to portray activists as producing new cultural forms rooted in a variety of historical, geographical, and cultural precedents. McNeil's book manuscript, currently in press, is tentatively titled Combating Mountaintop Removal: Remaking community, economy, and environment in the wake of corporate capitalism.
