CITS is pleased to co-sponsor this program on Interactive Visioning is being convened to further the environmental media approach of the 2012-13 “Figuring Sea Level Rise” theme of UC Santa Barbara’s annual Critical Issues in America series.  Invited speakers, together with the audience, will consider how research on the rising oceans is both conducted and disseminated to the public through sophisticated, visually rich, and often interactive techniques of measuring and modeling.  With a focus on tools for depicting current and future sea level rise--for example, interactive sites that enable the user to toggle up the sea height across a certain area of the earth’s surface--the day’s speakers will lead and inspire us to take cognizance of how humans are remaking the geography of our planet, and how we might intervene in that process, creatively, and in the interest of climate justice.
