What: DEI speaker series, funded by the McKeown lecture series. His talk is titled ‘My FLO is Cooler than Yours.’ It highlights an ongoing speculation challenging the role of heroes in landscape history. Inspired by contemporary representations of people and landscapes in television, and driven by contemporary visual media the series asks the simple question “what if” of one the profession's most cherished historic figures.
