Humanities in the Wild: Interactive Accident Maps of Douglas County

6:00-8:00pm Friday, June 28, 2019 Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop
Germaine Halegoua, Associate Professor of Film & Media Studies

Humanities in the Wild is presented by the Public Humanities Roundtable, the Hall Center for the Humanities, eXplore Lawrence, Sunflower Outdoor & Bike Shop, the KU Indigenous Studies Program, the Departments of Communication Studies, History, and African and African-American Studies, the KU Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum, and The Commons.

Where do cyclists crash most often?
Which intersections are the most dangerous?
What information do the police record about crashes?

Explore the interactive cycling accident maps created by Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies Germaine Halegoua. Her maps will be available to interact with, and she will be on-hand to help us think about what we can learn from systemic patterns of crashes in the Lawrence community.

Join us for conversation, community, and a new perspective on traversing Lawrence.

Humanities in the Wild is a new series of events, coinciding with Final Fridays, designed to showcase the connections between humanities research and the great outdoors. From the politics of climate change to the history of conservation, from the culture of recreation to narratives of adventure, Humanities in the Wild presents ways in which the humanities provide unique insights into our relationship with nature.
