Connected to and inspired by the graduate student conference EMERGING GEOGRAPHIES: MAPPING, TRACKING, AND TRACING, “Midnight University: Navigating Maps” will provide a chance for students to share stories about their encounters with maps or to help rethink the ways we interact with them.  A wide range of media will be presented -- spoken word, performance, photography, and film -- that consider maps in playful and imaginative ways.
