3Cs colloquium and panel

Sept. 5, 3Cs organized the Geography department colloquium – a panel including John Krygier, Jeremy Crampton, Lize Mogel, and Denis Wood. John spoke on the autistic characteristics of maps, Jeremy gave a history of critical cartography, Lize spoke on maps as art and political tools, and Denis also discussed the history of art mapping and critical cartographies and what this means for the future of mapping. Later that evening we gathered again (despite the predicted hurricane). Alexis Bhagat and Lize Mogel presented An Atlas of Radical Cartography, Pedro Lasch, another artist-mapper included in An Atlas, discussed his work and Denis Wood showed a slideshow of the history of art-mapping.
