Sarah Elwood is Professor of Geography at the University of Washington. Her work intersects critical GIS, and urban and political geography, studying the social and political impacts of spatial technologies and the changing practices and politics of local activism, community organizing, and other modes of civic engagement. The New Mappings Collaboratory at the University of Kentucky hosted Professor Elwood while she and faculty at UK collaborate with new spatial media.
