Vision

As practiced at the University of Oklahoma, Geo-Humanities is the meeting of cultural geography with the creative arts.  We experiment with many forms of media to answer 1) how the media carry out (i.e. do) geographical research in new ways, and 2) how the media carry (i.e. communicate) geographical arguments in ways previously impossible.

Through building new representational forms, new insights about the subject matter emerge.

We reward risk-taking and novel approaches to unraveling and expressing social-environmental problems of all kinds.  What visual, tactile, sonic, and performative forms might cultural geography take?


Here below you can view a guest lecture given by Dr. Nicholas Bauch, our studio director, at Carleton University on the 10th of January 2017.

In this lecture he touches on what Geo-Humanities is and describes his publication Enchanting the Desert.
