I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Barcelona and give a two-day workshop and public presentation on digital mapping and augmented reality for the Autonomous University in Barcelona. They have a very interesting and innovative landscape and history MA program.
The fact that I got to see that city in person – if only for a short time – was even more inspiring after having viewed materials on Pere IV in preparation for my visit. It is very strange to feel you know one part of a place in such depth, and yet not at all until the lived experience of walking its paths. Reminds me a bit of when I went to London for the first time – after I finished my dissertation on Victorian sensation fiction!
