Margaret Pearce, University of Kansas Dept. of Geography, will present a lecture, “Rethink the Reader: Toward Cartographic Design to Engage, Inspire, and Empower” tomorrow (Tues. 3/1) at 4:30 in 221 Coleman Hall.
Dr. Pearce works on cartographic representation of cultural and historical geographies, especially indigenous geographies. Her work stems from, as she describes it, “a love of map design as both a tool for exploring geographical information as well as expressive form for communicating complex geographical ideas, especially ideas about place and experience.” Her work is inspired and influenced by emerging ideas in critical cartography, affective technologies, and Indigenous Studies. She has published in journals such as Cartography and Geographic Information Science, American Indian Culture & Research Journal, and Cartographic Perspectives and has authored a book, Exploring Human Geography with Maps.
