  1. Are you going to post audio of the lecture? Unfortunately, I have department obligations this weekend, so I can’t make the trip down to Kentucky.

      Thanks for the interest. I may post the audio, though this is more dependent on images than most talks of mine, so it may not work well. I’ll be giving a version of it at the RGS-IBG as the Political Geography lecture in July, which will come out in the journal, so it will be available in some form fairly soon.

    Update: I’ve heard the talk will be videoed, so will post the link when available.
