How are maps being used to generate knowledge about queer histories and spaces in different contexts? Is it possible to queer the map? What are the practices that might allow this to happen?
This roundtable brings together researchers, artists, and activists who are using maps to generate and communicate knowledge about historical and contemporary spaces identified with LGBTQ+ individuals and communities.
Co-organised by Ben Campkin and Claire Tunnacliffe, this event coincides with the Whitechapel Gallery’s exhibition Queer Spaces: London, 1980s – Today, which features research and archives from Urban Laboratory researchers Ben Campkin, Lo Marshall, Sebastian Buser and Chris Storey.
There will be short presentations from invited speakers followed by discussion and Q&A.
