Ethnography Lab Workshop Series: Mapping Data

  • Speculative Life Research Cluster, EV 10.625 1455 Boulevard de Maisonneuve Ouest Montréal, QC, H3G 1M8 Canada (map)

How could we use geographical media to map ethnographic data? How could we map stories, life histories, and field observations? What are the potentials that are brought about by mapping techniques? 

Concordia Ethnography Lab is hosting a mapping workshop to introduce a range of basic mapping techniques for interested researchers and activists. This workshop will guide them in mapping their own ethnographic data in creative, informative, and accessible ways. 

In the morning, we’ll discuss mapping as a practice, and get an introduction to some basic techniques in QGIS and Open Street Maps (OSM). We will learn about theories behind mapping, as well as meanings of common practices used in the production of maps. After a lunch break, we’ll practice using these tools to workshop our material. The participants can bring their own data, or experiment with already existing data sets. 

The workshop will be facilitated by Joshua Neale. 

Lunch and light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to ceyda.yol@gmail.com 

Hope to see you there!
