Norman Dorsen Annual Lecture – Dr. Kristen Keegan – Zoom
Join us for a Zoom talk by Dr. Kristen Keegan, Sunday, September 12 at 3:00 p.m.
Dr. Keegan holds an MA in history and a Ph.D. in geography, and during her career has focused on history, historic architecture, and historical geography, fields that require extensive use of and knowledge about historic maps. She has worked in the field of cultural resource management in New England and New York for over twenty years, and seized occasional opportunities to contribute to academic work as far afield as Africa, Mexico, and the American Midwest, as well as topics closer to home.
Dr. Keegan will speak about the various maps presented in the exhibition MAP STORIES, touching on their relationships to the history and culture of Connecticut, and also on the physical processes of their production.
