Mapping as a Research Tool: How to Empirically Grasp the Refiguration of Spaces?

Dr. Carolin Genz | Sophie Krone | Dr. Séverine Marguin

By creating maps, researchers can gain insights into the social and cultural dimensions of urban, rural, hybrid, and mediated landscapes. Mapping can also be used to analyze historical changes, and to monitor ongoing changes and future developments. The objective of our workshop was to create space for transfer and exchange, especially about the interdisciplinary experience and body of knowledge produced in the first phase of the CRC. The different disciplinary backgrounds of the speakers demonstrate the transdisciplinary potential of mapping methods for the research of socio-spatial phenomena.

Waterbodies: flows, space, and other stuff

Afra Foli

What is your favorite waterbody? What do you like about it? Chances are that you thought of a lake or a river, maybe even an entire ocean. For the collaborative workshop at the CRC 1265 on ‘water, flows, space, and other stuff’, Moritz Kasper and Afra Foli decided to use the notion of ‘waterbody’ to talk about slightly unorthodox containers of water: an urban river-turned-drain in Accra and bright yellow jerry cans in Nairobi.

Exploring Power and Space: A Recap of the CRC 1265 Summer School

Francesca Ceola | Nicole Oetke | Zoé Perko

How is power reflected in space and how is it recreated? How can practices contribute to (re)defining power relations in different spaces? These questions and many more were discussed during the International Participatory Summer School on “Power and Space”. The school brought together scholars from four continents across a wide range of disciplines. Organized by a team of doctoral researchers of the CRC, the school took a participatory approach by combining participant-led workshops and presentations with keynotes and workshops led by activists, scholars, and artists. Within this framework, participants reflected on theories of power and space, as well as their own positionality. Through excursions in Berlin, the school moved beyond the academic space, enabling participants to experience physical and political spaces in the city.

„Karten und Pläne sind immer ein Machtinstrument“

Dr. Séverine Marguin | aufgezeichnet von Céline Lauer

Stadtpläne, U-Bahn-Netze, Google Maps: Kartierungen von Räumen sind aus dem Alltag nicht wegzudenken. Doch auch Forschende können mit Mappings ganz neue Wege einschlagen, findet Séverine Marguin. Hier erklärt die Soziologin, wie Wissenschaftler:innen des SFB mit diesem Werkzeug arbeiten, warum die Kommunikation via Kartierung oft sogar besser gelingt – und weshalb man sich von den hübsch anzuschauenden Plänen nicht täuschen lassen darf.

Five days in a Berlin School: Participatory workshop for the development of a Progressive Web Application

Dr. Ludovica Tomarchio | Prof. Dr. Angela Million | Dr.-Ing. Anna Juliane Heinrich | Dr. Ignacio Castillo Ulloa

The article describes the basic principles and some key exercises of the five-day participatory workshop that took place in Berlin in November 2022 with a group of young students. The aim of the workshop was to develop a progressive web application together with the young Berliners, which will later be used by the same students to create mental maps, a research method employed to record the routines, paths and experiences of young people in (their) spaces.

Visualizing Narrative Spaces

Claudia Mock | Simone Rueß

On the 22nd of November, 2022, Claudia Mock from the Methods-Lab of the CRC 1265 organized the hybrid lecture and workshop “Visualizing Narrative Spaces” with the visual artist Simone Rueß, who shared insights into her work, which deals with the inscription of politics into urban structures, home-making practices and memory processes within biographical narrations, contextualized through drawings, animations, objects and installations. In this blog post, Simone Rueß reflects on the hybrid workshop, which was conceived as a performative narrative in which diverse participants from various disciplines developed individual visual approaches in a collective action.

SFB1265 goes DGS

Nina Meier

Die um sich greifende Verbreitung digitaler Technologien sowie weltweite Prozesse der Entgrenzung, die gemeinhin mit dem Begriff der Globalisierung bezeichnet werden, aber auch Praktiken der Begrenzung – von Fabian Gülzau in seinem Vortrag einprägsam als „Mauerbaufieber“ betitelt – verändern die Art und Weise, wie Menschen Räume erfahren, aber auch die Art und Weise, wie sie diese erschaffen. Auf diesen Wandel wirft der Sonderforschungsbereich (SFB) 1265 „Re-Figuration von Räumen“ seit Januar 2018 einen forschenden Blick. In der Sonderveranstaltung „SFB 1265 goes DGS“ im Rahmen des 40. Kongresses der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Soziologie am 16. September 2020 gewährten Johanna Hoerning, Fabian Gülzau und Anna Steigemann Einblicke in einzelne Forschungsprojekte des SFBs, die sich mit unterschiedlichen Raumpolitiken befassen.

Janina Dobrusskin | Julia Fülling | Sophie Mélix

The first summer school of the integrated research training group of the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1265, titled “Spaces of Hope. Critical Perspectives on Spatial (Trans)Formations” took place in Berlin from the 11th to the 13th of September 2019 and brought together young researchers from all over the world. The following report gives a brief insight about the activities and research topics addressed during the summer school.
