On Saturday, I went to the Psychogeography talk with Olivia Gude, hosted by the DePaul Arts and Media Department. Though the talk was geared towards art students, specifically mural students, I lucked out. She touched on a few subjects that are helpul to explain what it is that geographers try to accomplish, something that isn’t clear to everyone.
Well hi there, geographers. I wanted to introduce myself since this is my first post. I’m Carl Sullivan, a geographer here at DePaul University.
Thats what I’ve got for right now, but as I post more here in the future, I hope you’ll get an insight into me and the kinds of things that we do in the geography department.
This, oddly enough, had nothing to do with the Geography department, but I wanted to include it here and spread the word.
Tomorrow afternoon, at 1:30, Olivia Gude is speaking here at DePaul. Her talk is called Psychogeography, and NO ONE in the geography department was informed. I just happened to stumble across the flier. The talk is about murals and how they help to integrate the community, so you Geography, INT, and Art students, this is right up your alley. Expect a post from me tomorrow describing the event.
