"Maryland Geography: An Introduction"

5166-0RrglL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

Here on our show, we look at Maryland through the prism of its politics, its culture, its history, its communities. But, in the eight years the show has been on the air, we're not sure we’ve looked at it through the prism of its geography. We’re going to address that right now, with a conversation with James DiLisio. DiLisio retired after a stint as Towson University’s interim provost and vice president for academic affairs – and, more to our purpose, after nearly 40 years as professor of geography. DiLisio has just published Maryland Geography: An Introduction with the Johns Hopkins University Press, and he’s with Sheilah in the studio to talk about it. 

DiLisio will be speaking this Friday at 3:00 pm in Towson University’s Liberal Arts Building (LA 3310). The event is free and open to the public.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
