  On the morning of September 8 Denis keynoted the Mapping Democracy: Technology, Social Change, and Web 2.0 conference in Boulder, Colorado. In addition to the anticipated participants, Public Laboratory’s entire staff made a very exciting addition.
     
  On the afternoon of September 9 Denis presented "The Anthropology of Cartography" at the faculty colloquium of the University of Colorado's geography department. (A version of the text is forthcoming in Les Roberts’ Mapping Cultures: Place, Practice, Performance, coming out from Palgrave in 2012.)
     
  On the afternoon of September 15, at the 2011 World Human Geography Conference: Communities and Ethics at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas, Denis gave “Maps and the State.” The conference was hosted by Haskell, the American Geographical Society, and the University of Kansas – and paid for by the U.S. Army – in an attempt to burnish the reputation of the AGS/FMSO's badly tarnished Bowman Expeditions. It failed spectacularly in the effort. (The text is here.)
     
  On the afternoon of November 9, Denis presented “Picturing Dogma: Kids Drawing the Earth” at the II International Colloquium on Education through Images and their Geographies at the University of São Paulo (Brazil). The four day conference was both intense and stimulating. The proceedings will be published (for his text, click here).
      
among many others at sessions of the annual meetings of the Association of American Geographers, National Council on Geographic Education, the Special Libraries Association, and so on, and at numerous colleges, universities and other settings.
