Community geography discussion draws 157

On March 27, Dr. Jonnell Robinson, assistant professor of geography at Syracuse University, captivated 157 students, faculty, and members of the local community in Sneden Hall with her talk on community geography. As one of only 41 Visiting Geographical Scientists listed by the American Association of Geographers and the International Geographical Honor Society, Dr. Robinson spoke on the importance of colleges and universities engaging in collaboration with their local communities in addressing issues and resolving problems through the application of geographical techniques, skills, and strategies. Her lecture, “Points, Lines and People: Connecting People and Place through Community Geography,” was filmed by GRCC Media Technologies and will soon be broadcast on GRCC TV. Dr. Robinson also was interviewed for GRCC’s “Conversation with a Geographer” oral history series, which was filmed by Media Technologies as well.
