Matthew Coolidge, Founder and Director of Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), will discuss the current and recent activities of CLUI, and the methodology of examining culture by describing the physical features of the landscape. The presentation will span the nation, looking at unusual and exemplary places, from bombing ranges to tourist caves.
About the Center for Land Use Interpretation: CLUI takes a broad interdisciplinary approach to the investigation of land use, drawing on the natural sciences, sociology, art, architecture, and history. The work of the Center has been presented in museums and noncommercial exhibit spaces, nationally and abroad, as well as in the institution's network of public exhibit facilities. The Center maintains an online database of unusual and exemplary land use in the United States, publishes books, operates a residence program and interpretive site, and conducts public tours.
