I’ll be in Colorado at the Fort Collins Book Fest later this month, where on October 20 I’ll lead a “Walking and Writing Place” workshop with Michael McLane and then be part of a panel called “A Good Earth is Hard to Find” with Susan A. Shriner, Gillian Bowser, Sam Kean, and moderator John Calderazzo.
I will contribute to a number of teaching-related sessions at the American Association of Geographers (AAG) conference in April 2018 in New Orleans.

I am also part of a panel on “Building the Geo-Humanities” on Friday, 13 April. On Saturday, 14 April, I am the discussant for a session on “Place-Based Pedagogy and Learning.”
