Lunch and Learn - Lillian Stimson Mentoring Program with Dr. Margaret Pearce
Margaret Pearce is a Citizen Potawatomi tribal member and cartographer living on the Penobscot homelands in Maine. A 2023 Guggenheim fellow, she holds a Ph.D. in geography from Clark University and served as a university geography professor for 15 years before dedicating herself to cartography full-time as an independent artist. Much of her cartographic work engages with Native tribes and addresses indigenous place-based histories and environmental geographies. She is currently at work on a project about Inuit Nunangat and industrial carbon pollution. Dr. Pearce will discuss her career journey, the current focus of her publicly engaged cartographic work, advice for up-and-coming professionals, and the role that ethics, accountability, and community engagement can and should play in the geospatial field.
