Living Maps III: Grounding Knowledge

Five Dreamings, painter – Michael Nelson Jakamarra, assisted by Marjorie Napaljarri, Papunya, Central Australia, 1984 acrylic on canvas, 122 x 182 cm.

Next Tuesday will see the third seminar in the Living Maps series. After ‘Mapping the Field’ and ‘Hidden Histories’, ‘Grounding Knowledge’ will see Øyvind EideIain Boal and David Pinder tackle issues of power and politics. I will be travelling down to London from Manchester for it myself.

Hosted this time at QMUL, the seminar will aim to interrogate the epistemological bases for mapping in the modern world. Questions such as “how are maps situated?”, “how do they tell specific stories?” and “how do they propose new ways of existence?” all pertinent.

Content from seminar’s ONE and TWO can also be viewed over at the Living Maps website. Tickets for each seminar are priced at £5 for students/unwaged and £20 for professionals/academics. They can be purchased individually from here. It will run from 18.00 – 20.30.
