Join us at the 3rd annual Thinking Spatially symposium as we explore the topics of Politics and Polarization, a defining characteristic of today’s political climate. Geographic relationships may help to provide clarity in the factors related to political discourse. What are the drivers of polarization and how do they affect political perspectives? Can maps help us to interpret the divisiveness more efficiently? Speakers will present work that examines polarized politics and how geography offers additional perspective on regional ideology. Additional presentations will provide overviews of data, tools, and software resources available at the University of Minnesota. This includes an introduction to Esri Story Maps.
Thinking Spatially: Politics and Polarization is for everyone interested in politics, partisanship, idealism, voting patterns, racism, civil rights, community development, mapping, and more. All faculty, staff, students, and community members are invited to join us at this free event. Join us remotely via livestream.
