Please join the Department of Geography and the Environment for our Spring 2014 colloquium series. We will be hosting a presentation by  Dr. Kirk Goldsberry, visiting Scholar at Harvard University, and staff writer at Grantland.com

Title: LeBron, Coetzee, and Tobler

Description: This talk explores the sudden explosion of spatial analytics in sports and society amidst only mediocre interest in spatial thinking in higher education. Spatial reasoning and spatial analytics have never been more important, but you would not know that by the state of the curriculum at American universities. 

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, email Madeline Enos at madelineenos@austin.utexas.edu.
