Derek Gregory, Peter Wall Distinguished Professor of Political Geography at the University of British Columbia, continued the Eisenberg Institute's fall programming with the lecture, "Deadly Embrace: War, Distance, and Intimacy." In addition to a formidable body of groundbreaking work in the discipline of geography, Professor Gregory has reached audiences both inside and outside the academy with lectures and publications relating to post-9/11 warfare. He launched his blog, "Geographical Imaginations," in July 2012. The talk took place in 1014 Tisch Hall.
