Brief Expeditions into the Geographies of Everything and Nothing
Geographical Imaginations is a growing multi-media public geography initiative designed to bring together academic and everyday geographical, or spatial, thinking. We believe everybody is a geographer and a co-maker of spaces. As an inquiry-based project, we ask questions and explore themes through dialogues with different texts and voices. Inevitably, our explorations return to simple, yet complex, questions. How does ________ inform the way I picture the world in my head? How does that picture, in turn, limit or expand my place in the world?
The main focus of the project is an hour-long radio essay program broadcast monthly from Radio Fabrik in Salzburg, Austria. In each episode we make brief expeditions into “the geographies of everything and nothing.” We reflect upon our relationships with the worlds we inhabit and co-create. While many of the episodes deal with local and regional topics, themes are somewhat universal and our investigations could inform the geographical imaginations of those living anywhere in the world.

Kevin is from Connecticut. His own geographical imagination has been (in)formed in some ways by the discipline of geography while a graduate student at both Ohio University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Identifying himself as a cultural geographer, the questions he likes to ask come back to how we think about space and place, and this imagining of the world at all of its scales.
Kevin currently teaches and lives in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. He hosts and produces this show.
