"Guides for Queer Folks: Travel Guides, Maps, and Materiality" Lecture & Exhibit Presented by Jack Swab

Join us for "Guides for Queer Folks: Travel Guides, Maps, and Materiality," a lecture and exhibit presented by Geography PhD Student, Jack Swab.

"Guides for Queer Folks," includes travel guides, maps, magazines, postcards, and advertising from the 1930s to the mid 2000s. Swab's lecture will examine the utility of queer geographic information to show how the physical arrangement of queer spatial media and the work taken to preserve them reveal the time's politics and perils. 

The lecture and exhibit will be held in person in the Great Hall of the Special Collections Research Center at the Margaret I. King Library on Friday, February 17 from 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm.

The event is free and open to the public. RSVPs are appreciated.

A geographer fascinated by the relationship between human geography and cartography created using Geographic Information Systems, Swab received his BS degree in Geography at Penn State and then an MA degree in Geography at University of Kentucky (UK). Swab is a PhD candidate in the Geography department at UK now and serves as Vice Chair for the American Association of Geographers Cartography Speciality Group.
