The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS) in collaboration with the Geomedia lab at Concordia University is organizing a series of conversations around maps and stories. These conversations will involve students, researchers, mapmakers, artists, and activists working at the intersection between maps and stories, and will aim to address two broad questions: What are the most pressing methodological, theoretical, technological, ethical and design challenges raised by the relationship between maps and stories? What might be the impacts of these relationships within the social, cultural and political spheres? This series of conversations will take place online and will be freely accessible.
In order to accommodate social distancing, all of COHDS/ALLab events will be held online.
