A new book co-edited by Ola Ahlqvist and Christoph Schlieder, entitled Geogames and Geoplay: Game-based Approaches to the Analysis of Geo-Information, has just been published by Springer.

A new book co-edited by Madhu Dutta has been announced by Rowman & Littlefield International. The co-edited book (part of Transforming Capitalism series) is under production right now. Besides co-editing the volume, Madhu has a chapter in the book and also have co-written the introduction with the other editors. The book will be formally launched at an event at the AAG 2018 by RLI.

Sam Kay tells me that he and Lili Wang reunited this past weekend in Nanjing for a workshop hosted by Chen Hao, another critical urban scholar based there. Sadly they lacked the quorum for a proper O-H-I-O photo. Great to hear news from our Alumni and Graduate Students.
