Critical Approaches to Place NEH project featured in El Paso Herald-Post

Posted by  in News

My new National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) funded project with Dr. Kerry Banazek, “Critical Approaches to Place: Teaching Narrative Mapping in Southern New Mexico” was featured in the El Paso Herald-Post:

“What is a map? What do maps do? How do they entice, lie, tell stories, reveal cultural values and participate in complex histories?

Those were some questions faculty, researchers, and graduate students at New Mexico State University (NMSU) recently explored in an interdisciplinary workshop, thanks to a $149,890 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The event, which was held Aug. 4–6, kicked off a three-year project focused on critical approaches to place and the environment.”
