Barry Lawrence Ruderman Conference on Cartography
I was honored to be invited to speak at the Barry Lawrence Ruderman Conference on Cartography hosted by the David Rumsey Map Center at Stanford University. My talk, titled "Patchwork Stories: Embodied Queer Geographies and Storytelling Through Data Visualization" surveyed recent impactful projects in the area of queer geography and the use of data physicalization, especially quilting, in telling stories. I also featured my project QUILT: Queer Intimacies Located in Thread at the conference.
