This transdisciplinary symposium, hosted by the Bartlett School of Architecture, and part of the project 'Ethics in Built Environment Research', explores the role ethics plays in built environment research – tackling topics such as big data, fossil fuel, housing and regeneration, and addressing issues like confidentiality, consent, risk and vulnerability.

LIVINGMAPS: Indigenous Cartographies

Start: Jun 9, 2015 6:00:00 PM
End: Jun 9, 2015 8:00:00 PM

Maps have often been used to stake territorial claims over resources. This practice is not confined to the era of European colonialism, it continues to be an operating principle of nation states or multi-national corporations wherever they seek to extend their domains by ignoring or delegitimising the customary rights of indigenous peoples. In this seminar we will be looking at how far cartography can become a means of resistance challenging the prerogatives of power and re-asserting historical entitlements to land and landscape.
