From #lovemaps to #cartofail: exploring cartographic rhetoric
Presenter: Amber Bosse, University of Kentucky
As maps and their processes of production become increasingly accessible throughout the world, cartography is being discussed by more diverse populations in more diverse settings than ever before. Examining the rhetoric employed by an individual or group can reveal underlying values and goals. For this talk, I will discuss my process of quantitative/qualitative analysis on the rhetoric emanating from the NACIS community (Cartographic Perspectives, Twitter, Atlases of Design, and CartoTalk) to explore what it is our words say about us and what we can do to continue to build on our reputation of “NACIS is nicest.”

(A Woman’s) Cartographic Perspective
Presenter: Vanessa Knoppke-Wetzel,
Women (and minorities) often stay quiet about microaggressions and assumptions made in school and the workplace. These, and moments of impostor syndrome experienced, are often not widely discussed. As such, I wanted to share a few of my personal experiences as a student, professional, and conference attendee, and what, over time, I’ve learned to change in both my internal and external responses. I hope this adds to the many wonderful open discussions NACIS goers have, and encourages others to discuss theirs.

The new LGBT neighborhood: Everywhere
Presenter: Jeff Ferzoco, CARTO
In the past few decades, your city’s LGBT neighborhood has changed. Traditionally, gay neighborhoods were in clusters, making them centralized and secure. In recent years a variety of cultural, social and economic factors have distributed LGBT people widely across cities and regions. This shift has inspired mapping explorations of the history and current state of the American LGBT landscape—using historical texts, gay guides and data. This talk will look at the mapping projects being built to understand the new spatial distribution of the LGBT community—and those efforts can be used for other communities.
