Why Geography Matters

Belfer Case Study Room (S020)

Have you ever wondered why there is geospatial analysis at Harvard and yet you can’t seem to find many geography classes on campus? Have you wondered why Americans don’t study much geography? This panel will explore why geography matters, to scholarship and intellectual debates, in politics, policy-making, culture, history, humanities, and higher education. Come to learn the history of what happened to geography at Harvard, current initiatives on campus and in the discipline more broadly. Panelists will discuss why and how geography matters, now more than ever.

Panelists:

Alison Mountz, Harvard University
Peter K. Bol, Harvard University
Tim Cresswell, Northeastern University
Mona Domash, Dartmouth University
Richard Wright, Dartmouth University
