The Importance of Critical Cartographies & Situated Knowledge Production



This philosophical session on new materialisms-driven critical cartographies starts with a collective reflection on the importance of situated knowledge production. By situating ourselves as researchers-practitioners via Donna J. Haraway’s (1988) situated knowledges paradigm and Karen Barad’s (2007) diffractive theorizing, we examine how the methodology of critical cartography can assist us in better understanding the entanglements between ourselves as researchers-practitioners, the environment, and our engagement with research phenomena. This will underline the fact that maps – whether purely conceptual, sketched out for architectural projects, or designed to explore and conquer, … – do not simply reflect realities-imaginaries but also harbor the potential to create-destroy worlds.
