The ‘local’ has attained ever greater political resonance as a site of registration and resistance to globalisation. In this session we look at three different projects of ‘thick’ mapping in which an attempt is being made to capture the peculiarities of place at a time of accelerated structural change.
With Barbara Brayshay
‘Community Development Through Participatory Mapping’
The Case of Woodberry Down’
and Nicola Samson
‘Capturing Women’s Voices in an East London Street’
The event is part of the second seminar series of LIVINGMAPS, which focusses on the unsettling of map/ territory relations as a result of globalisation and its many local discontents. Each session brings together leading academics, artists and activists from a range of perspectives, to explore different aspects of this issue.
