A presentation by Dr. Rina Ghose, Professor at The Geography Department at The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
February 22, 2019
Mitchell Hall 206
Prof. Ghose’s research interests intersect Critical GIS, urban geography, and political economy. Her research questions center around poverty, inequality, and social justice. She has conducted decade-long research on public participation GIS among traditionally marginalized citizen groups, to examine how GIS technologies can be used as modes of resistance to combat structural inequities and inner-city poverty. As part of this research agenda, she has also examined social activism and grassroots community organizing in the inner-city, and explored collaborative planning programs that are used in inner-city redevelopment.
