Chair: Phil Cohen


* Christos Varvantakis, Research Fellow at the University of Sussex

University of London
* Juliet Davis, Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University
* Sevasti-Melissa Nolas, Senior Lecture at the University of Sussex

About the event:

Ethnographers have always been interested in how spatial practices
articulate cultural forms, and vice versa. Social geographers have
also been concerned to explore mental maps and how these shape or
reflect the way different groups navigate and make sense of their
environment. However, despite their potential convergence around
notions of place intelligence and the living map, there has been
little dialogue between these disciplines. Our four speakers will draw
on their own research to discuss the points of intersection - and
tension - between these different perspectives.

Christos Varvantakis, Research Fellow at the University of Sussex, and
Sevasti-Melissa Nolas, Senior Lecturer at the University of Sussex,
will discuss how children map their neighbourhoods and things that
matter to them. Drawing on research conducted in London and Athens,
Varvantakis and Nolas will explore how, in the hands of children, maps
become more than a representational framework, instead revealing
children's desires and critiques of their lives beyond the domestic or
private sphere.

Jina Lee, PhD candidate at the University of the Arts London, will
describe how her practice-based research as an artist-cartographer
re-examines the role of drawing in map-making, highlighting as it does
the process and agency involved in creating maps. Lee will draw on her
work with the Joseonjok people in New Malden, London, to explore
contemporary drawing practices.

Katherine Stansfeld, PhD candidate at Royal Holloway, University of
London, will investigate the potential of visual ethnography and
cartographic practice to explore and re-imagine the super-diverse
city. Drawing on her research in Finsbury Park, north-east London,
Stansfeld will explain how mapping has the potential to express the
multiplicity of meaning that exists in super-diverse places.

Juliet Davis, senior lecturer in architecture at Cardiff University,
will reflect on the redevelopment of the 2012 Olympic Games site in
East London, portrayed in planning documents as an industrial
wasteland. Drawing on historical, cartographic and photographic
research, Davis will offer an alternative account of the site as an
historical, lived, working landscape, and will go on to reveal some of
the legacies of redevelopment for the industrial users who were
dispersed to make way for the Games.
