Maps of worlds are often depicted as stories already told, already written. If we acknowledge these geographies as emerging and in process, how can we map, track, and trace these worlds as they become entangled with and produce various scales of time and space?
EMERGING GEOGRAPHIES: MAPPING, TRACKING, TRACING is a one-day conference organized by the anthropology graduate students at the University of California, Santa Cruz. We invite students, faculty, and cross-disciplinary colleagues to explore the processes of mapping, their historical contingencies, and their unexpected entanglements with "out of the way" places.
In conjunction with the conference, we are also excited to be hosting MIDNIGHT UNIVERSITY: NAVIGATING MAPS, an informal evening of creative expression and engaged conversation on the lives of maps -- also on April 18, 2008.
Please visit the site often. We will be updating regularly with conference information.
