Pinned post

Making my first post here, recently moved from Twitter but can’t say I’ve brought a lot of followers wit me. Working on a book documenting the amazing creativity and commemorative activity in Iowa City, & communities like Dubuque and La Crosse along the Mississippi during the decade of Iowa territorial centennial. Enterprise has been largely forgotten; era now better known for the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Learn more about my life and loves by checking out my profile flickr.com/mdorn

@oldbritishtelly Latest noteworthy discovery, esp’y the 1978 architectural history series “Six English Towns,” shared this afternoon/evening.

One tiny silver lining of the past few weeks is that they've really underscored how silly it was that anyone ever believed rich people are smarter than everyone else.

The Geography Department at Lund University is recruiting up to 6 professors in human geography, economic geography and development geography. More details here: lu.varbi.com/en/what:job/jobID

The Internet Archive fulfills lots of #ILL requests each day (and on holidays/weekends).

Each one takes a person to do it, so we spread it out to staff around the world.

I love that the highest years are the 1990's...

Keeping our cultural memory alive!

It's Sunday morning and I'm heading down to the Roasterie Factory Cafe on W. 27th where I'll be from 9:30 am on. Feel free to drop by and say "hi !"

I'm working on a list of Mastodon accounts of #Migration scholars and researchers. 🌐 🎓

See link below 👈

This is very much work in progress. (It started from my small Mastodon bubble and I have no idea where it is going. 😅 Meanwhile...)

If you'd like to be added to the list (or have accounts to recommend), pls contact me. 💬 & boost pls 🔁

@oldmapgallery would love pay you a visit sometime as I am a budding collector


I'm Devin, married to love of my life, w/ couple of kids. I'm a lifelong Kansan, grew up on a farm in Jewell County, north of Mankato. I graduated from White Rock HS 1991, K-State 1996 w/a BS Agronomy & Natural Resources.
I'm an education advocate by necessity, seeing my kids' K classes bursting at the seams.
I walked carrying a brick from my Dad's & Grandpa's one room schoolhouse 60+ miles to Topeka w/friends to raise awareness to elected officials of lack of public school $.

I'm a Missourian, a graduate of Long Island University library school, and currently work in the government records sector in Overland Park, Kansas. I've posted a brief description of my current book project which you can find pinnned to the top of my feed but without a hashtag. May work it over and try again soon. Excited to be able to connect with local folks on here, as I found it rather difficult doing so on Twitter. I moved back to the Midwest in 2015.

The geographers on Mastodon list is still growing steadily. Now 250 listed progcity.maynoothuniversity.ie

The codeberg list for bulk follows will be updated shortly with the latest additions lejun.codeberg.page/Mastodon-G

If you want to be added just let me know. Also consider joining the @geography group
