Anne Knowles, a geography professor atMiddlebury College, is using geographic information systems (GIS) to learn more about the Civil War and the Holocaust. St. Michael’s College professor Richard Kujawa is looking at the public benefit of conservation easements and the complex relationships that tie places together. We look at geography in the 21stcentury with both of them.
Plus, Vermont will get a new Supreme Court justice in the coming year as Denise Johnson steps down. Vermont Law School Professor Cheryl Hanna explains the process and the pressure on judges throughout Vermont's court system.And we hear a recitation from Vermont’s reigning Poetry Out Loud champion Claude Mumbere of Burlington High School.
