Throughout the years, spatial analytics and data have been nurtured by path-breaking scholars from a variety of backgrounds. But who are these people? What reflections do they have on their experience? How have “Spatial Analytics” and “Data” changed, and what is their future?
The #SADinterviews series, co-sponsored by the Royal Geographical Society, brings long-form, informal conversations with influencers of our generation in spatial analytics and data, providing a window into their insights on the evolution (and revolutions) of the field.
About the event
For our next conversation, join Sarah Elwood, Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Washington, in conversation with Daniel Arribas-Bel, Rachel Franklin, and Levi John Wolf.
Elwood received her Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Minnesota and previously held faculty positions at DePaul University and the University of Arizona. Her research contributes to relational poverty studies, critical GIScience and digital geographies, visual politics and mixed methods, and urban geography. Elwood's work has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Spencer Foundation, National Geographic Education Foundation, and others. The Spatial Analytics + Data seminar series, brought to you by Newcastle University, Bristol University and The Alan Turing Institute, provides a forum for dialogue among scholars united by interest in geographic data & spatial analysis, as well as a platform for cutting-edge methods and thinking in spatial social science.
