Tuesday, April 12: “Maps: Storytellers or Factfinders?” Lori Palmeri, Mayor of Oshkosh
- 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM, Sage Hall 1214
- Sponsored by the UWO Geography Department: Geiger Lecture 2022 Lori Palmeri, Mayor of Oshkosh “Maps: Storytellers or Factfinders?”
- Oshkosh Mayor Lori Palmeri will discuss how maps can be storytellers and/or factfinders that inform local decisions. In a time where misinformation and disinformation have made it difficult for people to know what to think, there is a need to critically examine how data are provided to local decision makers and to the public. This is particularly true in consideration of local budgets and in the equitable allocation of resources. Lori Palmeri has a bachelor’s degree in Geography and Urban Planning from UW Oshkosh and a Masters in Urban Planning from UW Milwaukee.
