Matthew W. Wilson Lecture: Quantified Self-City-Nation: Digital Systems for Attentional Control
Monday, April 28, 2014 7:00 PM
Lancaster Lounge, Moulton Union
Matthew Wilson’s presentation draws parallels between the rising consumer-electronic sector associated with personal activity monitors and the rapid visioning of smart urbanism. He interrogates developments in interoperability and propriety, competition and habit, fashion and surveillance. He addresses the social-cultural and political implications for this refiguring of spatial thought and action as well as the capacities reinforced and developed through the implementation of these technologies and techniques.
Matthew Wilson is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning and Design at the Graduate School of Design and Visiting Scholar at the Center for Geographic Analysis at Harvard University and Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Kentucky, where he co-directs the New Mapping Collaboratory. Matt holds a PhD in Geography from the University of Washington. His website is http://matthew-w-wilson.com.

Film Reviving the Freedom Mill
Tuesday, April 22 6:00 PM, 8:00 PM, $5 all proceeds benefit the sponsors
Frontier, 14 Maine St, Brunswick
Summary: When environmentalist Tony Grassi takes a crazy gamble to rehab an abandoned Mill, he inspires both skepticism and hope that its revived bond with the river will breathe new life into the rural town of Freedom, Maine. With the help of a colorful team of builders, masons, engineers and architects, he sets out to reconstruct a forgotten historical treasure. Can his 21st century vision of conservation re-power this community, which is now welcoming a new generation of young farmers?
