If you are an Urban Geographer in practice or in practice-adjacent research, we would love to have you join us on the panel. The topics include the many ways in which urban policy has been impacted by COVID-19, including difficulties in urban public assistance, employment, disinvestment from urban areas, and health care. Please submit your interests and qualifications to Rich Quodomine, Richard.Quodomine@phila.gov .
The challenge of the Practicing Urban Geographer is manifold in the era of COVID-19. However, it boils down to two crucial aspects: How do you analyze the impact of COVID-19, and given that imperfect knowledge, how do you deliver critical municipal services? What role does Geography play in both analysis and delivery? How do we distribute city services equitably and safely? What role does race, income and density play in both analysis and delivery?
Richard D. Quodomine, Senior Lead GIS Analyst at the City of Philadelphia, will lead a panel discussion that explores the complex matters from a practicing geographer’s perspectives. Important topics may include integrating research in the practicing field, qualitative and quantitative methods to inform effective policy, partnerships between governments, universities, non-profits and the private sector, and reaching communities challenged by COVID and other factors, such as race, income, age, religion or LGBTQ status.
