Knowles (now famous from NYT article on spatial humanities) on Vermont Public Radio Tuesday

There was a time when geography was memorizing chief crops, major bodies of water and picking out countries on a map. Knowing that cloves came from places like Zanzibar and Madagascar or locating the Caspian Sea seemed all there was to this study.  Not today.

Anne Knowles, a geography professor at Middlebury College, is using geographic information systems (GIS) to learn more about the Civil War and the Holocaust. St. Michael’s College professor Richard Kujawa is looking at the public benefit of conservation easements and the complex relationships that tie places together.  We look at geography in the 21stcentury with both of them.
