Towards Social Topology: Connecting people, places, things, and policies in GIS
This talk will first introduce recent trends and practices related to using GIS for equity and social justice (ESJ). Second, Dr. Ghosh will share thoughts, lessons learned, and examples from her research on understanding the interplay of spaces of everyday life, facilitators and barriers, and social connections in which HIV-infected drug users live and interact. Dr. Ghosh employs an interdisciplinary approach to investigate health issues to provide quantitative evidence for intervention and preventive policies.
