Conference «Mapping as Joint Spatial Display»

29. November 2018 – 30. November 2018

At the interface between sociology of space, architecture, urban studies and geography, the conference aims to raise an interdisciplinary methodological discourse about the instruments of mapping for the research on space. We aim at confronting two specific and so far disconnected methodological discourses on data integration: the sociological discourse on joint displays and the discussion about mapping from the spatial sciences. We hope to learn from this confrontation about the instrumental integration of textual, visual and numeral data into one single interface.
