This is a mapping project associated with the research project: Infrastructures of Caring Citizenship, investigating the politics and spatialities of practices of care on a collective and self-organised basis in the urban contexts of Southern Europe. At present, the project falls into a doctoral thesis at University College London, although it draws on previous works conducted in other academic settings and it hopes to expand beyond this framework in the future.
The mapping device emerges from the interest to trace affinities and translate experiences among different initiatives working, struggling and organising around pressing issues of social reproduction across different territories of our contemporary common context of crisis. It also aims to contribute to the collective endeavour of defining a politics of care, as a possible new political imagination emerging from grassroots practices. More practically, it attempts to feed other projects within this PhD research, and hopes to become a tool for anyone interested in these questions.
