Mapping Injustice is a workshop that seeks to introduce methods of critical cartography and spatial media for storytelling in public humanities. This workshop is inspired by the emergence of several anti-monumental projects that apply spatial research to contest controversial historical memories permeating public spaces. The first part of the workshop will be led by Grga Bašić (University of Chicago), who will introduce his process and tools applied to engage with narrative and critical cartographies. This section will introduce the audience to the technical components currently used in digital mapping for public humanities projects, like QGIS, and invite us to expand our understanding of spatial media beyond the interactive map. For the second part, we will invite the audience to debate these ideas and imagine a spatial version of their own public humanities initiatives. The exercise will offer a chance to consider the incorporation of elements of digital mapping and spatial media into different projects, and address issues such as visualization, public engagement and community-led spatial storytelling.

Guest Speaker: Grga Bašić (Senior Research Associate in Cartography and Spatial Media, Urban Theory Lab, University of Chicago)
