A group of students, staff and researchers at Queen Mary University have been mapping the ways in which migration, border technologies, surveillance and monetary flows intersect with the university as our place of work and study. Joining us in the mapping project are Liz and Tim from the Counter Cartographies Collective from the University of North Carolina. Together we have been exploring the dynamics and possibilities of mapping as method and action.
We would like to invite you to the the final public workshop of the CounterMapping QMary project on Monday 24 May at 4pm in the Francis Bancroft Building Queen Mary Mile End Campus, room 4.08 (the room is wheelchair accessible)
/// The politics and potential of counter-mapping \\\\
a presentation and open discussion
In the final workshop, the Counter/Mapping QMary project will present [as a work in progress] the counter map of Queen Mary. This presentation will be followed by an open discussion of the methods and politics of mapping the university as a site of migration, education and labour struggles.
