This essay serves as an extension of the 2020 AiT Conference titled "Stories-so-Far: Spatial Knowledges and Imaginaries." Together we have created a digital research space that will continue to grow and support collaboration on research and activism related to various themes from the conference.

Some of these themes may include: Collaboration ethics, methodologies, infrastructuring archives, transnational hyper-nationalist science, transient spaces, law shapes space and vice versa, landscapes, anticipatory space, (re)mapping, affect theory, psychogeography, constructed environment programs, migration/refugees, war, trauma and traumatic spaces; monumentality; home, (IL)liberalism, space and religiosity, silence(s), archives, trace and space, feminist geography; racialized spaces
