WhenThursday, May 30, 2019, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Description

The MS in Geospatial Technologies hosts the second annual Coffey Lecture.  The Brian Coffey Lecture brings leading voices in the study of spatial information and urban environments to the University of Washington Tacoma. It is an opportunity for our community to interface with the big ideas that are driving spatial data, urban research, and innovation.

Rina Ghose, UW-Milwaukee presents:
Critical GIS and the Right To The City

Racial, economic, political and environmental injustices have claimed urban spaces, leading to contestations through civic engagements, community activism and social movements.  Claiming and reshaping urban spaces to create a just, sustainable city requires citizens to formulate spatial strategies.  Through nuanced, bottom-up spatial knowledge production, Critical GIS offers opportunities to advance spatial planning, organization and activism among grassroots groups.  Through community-engaged research, I examine the ways Community Information Systems, open GIS, geoweb, and VGI can advance community activism and right to the city.
