Monday, April 28 | 12:00 – 1:00 PM
With presenters Steve Bradley and Nicole King
Dresher Center Conference Room (216 Performing Arts and Humanities Building)
UMBC associate professor Steve Bradley of Visual Arts and assistant professor Nicole King of American Studies will present their collaborative research Mapping Baybrook, an interdisciplinary exploration of place that uses digital mapping to illustrate research on the history and culture of an industrial community in Baltimore, Maryland referred to as Baybrook—a merging of the names of two neighborhoods, Brooklyn and Curtis Bay. The story of Greater Baybrook reflects the tenacity of a community striving for sustainability in the boom and bust of U. S. industrial development.
CIRCA Catalyst is an ongoing series promoting conversations around transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research that fuses the performing and visual arts with other fields of inquiry and scholarship. A catered lunch, with vegetarian options, will be provided by CIRCA (the Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts).
