The UCSB Forum on Spatial Thinking


Informal presentations that feature theories, concepts, tools, and applications for spatial thinking across disciplines, including the natural and the social sciences, as well as the humanities. Due to the closure of UCSB for COVID-19, presentations that normally take place at the Center for Spatial Studies, Phelps 3512, will temporarily be hosted via online meeting.

Please contact Karen Doehner, or Kitty Currier, to review and schedule possible discussion topics or presentations that share your disciplinary interest in spatial thinking.
