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
We are a group of interdisciplinary grad students from a variety of universities who met at the 2020 AiT Conference. Hoping to continue our conversations beyond the conference, we created this working group that meets on a regular basis to discuss various themes around spatial imaginaries and experimental methodologies.
Our members include:
Albahar Shahab, Marwa Bakabas, Kaitlyn Rabach, Jessica Slattery, and Prerna Srigyan. 2020. Spatial Studies Working Space.
