My AAG 2014 Talk: Quantum Geographies: Applying Einsteinian Space-Time, Metaphysics and Multiverse Theory to Four-Dimensional Interpretation of Places Memorializing Tragedy

This is my AAG talk, given this past Thursday afternoon. I’m only posting the slides because I did not write a full narrative for this talk. I think readers can generally follow from the slides below, though.

It was probably too ambitious for 15 minutes, and I don’t know if I’ll ever revisit this idea again, but it was still a fun talk to give.

CFP – Future Directions in Geoweb Research: an alt.conference of Big Data, Theory and Geography’s Role

We’d like to call attention to the unique format we are able to facilitate. We’re encouraging submissions for short lightning talk panels that do not interfere with your ability to present more substantial papers at the AAG.

The lightning talks are organized by theme and will then be discussed by panelists including Rob Kitchin, Nadine Schuurman, Matt Wilson, Matt Zook, Jeremy Crampton, Monica Stephens, Mark Graham, David O’Sullivan, Agnieszka Leszczynski, Renee Sieber, and others.

The purpose of the alt.conference is to give an opportunity for younger scholars to receive immediate feedback and begin discussions with more senior researchers. Contributions will then be solicited for potential inclusion in an edited volume.

Consider submitting a short talk and encouraging others to do so as well.

My Talk at AAG 2012

My talk at the AAG this year was on the final day, early in the morning, during about three other similar sessions, and held in a forgotten corner in the bowels of the Hilton NY. Though it was still well attended (maybe 15-20 folks), it’s understandable that some people who may have been interested in what I had to say weren’t able to come. That’s why I post it here. Sadly, this time, my phone failed to record my talk for an exact transcript, so I have to go off of memory. Forgive me if I build on or improve/regress upon my thoughts in this version. 🙂 Continue reading “My Talk at AAG 2012”
