This semester UTL faculty member, Robert Gerard Pietrusko, will again be offering his course "Mapping: Geographic Representation and Speculation," with the help of UTL doctoral student, Daniel Ibanez. In this lecture, students learn to think criticially about geospatial datasets and unpack the conventions of carographic representation while deploying these techniques within their own work to visual complex spatial processes or speculate on future spatial possibilities.

Congratulations to UTL researcher and MDesS '15 candidate Ana Maria Quirós for receiving GIS Prize for Excellence in Russian, East European, and Central Asian Studies, presented by the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at the Annual Conference of the Center for Geographic Analysis, Harvard University. This work was produced in the context of the UTL Spring 2014 research seminar on the "extreme territories of urbanization." Consistent with our general concern to analyze the dialectics of concentrated and extended urbanization, Ana Maria's maps depict the increasing redirection of Siberian gas pipeline infrastructures towards the East Asian urban system and the Pacific rim. Nice work, Ana Maria!
