TURLOCK—Geography meets Humanities: A Focus on Social Justice

November 13, 2019 @ 7:00 am12:30 pm

TURLOCK—This event brings together a series of speakers during Geography Awareness Week to share research illustrating how geography intersects with the humanities, with social justice as a central theme. Speakers will discuss a wide range of topics including film, fair trade, and the role of big data and GIS in support of community activism addressing social justice concerns, health disparities and other social inequalities in disadvantaged communities. This event introduces the public to the value of transdisciplinary work — in this case, the intersection of the humanities and geography — and its application not just in academia but also to problems and issues in our everyday lives. Through experience of a shared history of civic participation this event invites the audience to think about interconnections between the humanities, geography, and social justice in everyday life. This event is open and free to the public, free parking in Lot 11 and ADA accessible facilities. Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 3:00 PM @ Mary Stuart Rogers 130 Stanislaus State One University Circle Turlock, CA 95382 For a full program, speakers and more: In English: visit https://www.csustan.edu/geography/geography-meets-humanities or contact Christina Aflleje-Meyer, Academic Office Program Coordinator phone: 209-667-3127 e-mail: cafllejemeyer@csustan.edu.
