For PK Person of the Week, Kevin S. Fox, PechaKucha Nights are a 21st-century forum “where the professional, the poetic, and the personal find their public.” Over the past 2 years this American cultural geographer has presented at 9 PechaKucha Nights in Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Germany and USA. For the presentations he usually discusses his monthly radio show, Geographical Imaginations, where he explores the geographies of everything and nothing with a wide range of people—including academics, artists and everyday geographers. He asks questions and explores themes through dialogue and experimentation. Inevitably, these explorations return to simple, yet complex, questions: How does _____ inform the way I picture the world in my head? How does that picture, in turn, limit or expand my place in the world? Check out his Salzburg, Austria based radio program or his recent presentation from PKN Aalen, Geography of PechaKucha.
