\\\\///\\ Counter/Mapping QMary ////
////////////////\\\////////the university and border technologies

To begin by asking <what is the university> requires an investigation of the function of the university not only as a knowledge factory but also as a border. Our investigation of what the university produces as knowledge, hierarchies and power exposes the border/s that operate in, on and around the university. That <the university is a border> is made possible by the operation of a filter mechanism. The counting of bodies, money in and money out, who can and can not enter, what are we when we leave, the limits of what is and is not knowledge and the complicity with national and global border regimes – who and what is stopped at the border?
--
A group of students, staff and researchers at Queen Mary University have set out to map the ways in which migration, border technologies, surveillance and monetary flows intersect with the university as our place of work and study. Joining us in the project are the <
Counter-Cartographies Collective from the University of North Carolina>, who will help to explore the dynamics and possibilities of mapping as method and action.
--
From Thursday 13 May – Monday 24 May we will gather to discuss, research and take action to produce a counter map of Queen Mary University. As part of our practice we will be facilitating <
three public workshops> to expand the participation and possibilities of the project. These workshops as well as the counter mapping production process are open to all who are interested and are free to attend – please see below for the programme and contact details. The venue for all events will be room 4.08 in the Francis Bancroft Building of Queen Mary Campus and is accessible.

//////Thursday 13 May, 2pm
\\\\\\\\\\Imaginaries of the university

//////////How to make a counter-map

The Counter-Cartographies Collective will facilitate a workshop on radical collaborative mapping skills using available open source mapping software and web-based data-mining techniques. Free and open to all, email us to register.

///////Monday 24 May, 4pm
\\\\\\\\\\\The politics and potential of counter-mapping

March 27: 3Cs presents at NC Rising!
Friday, 26 March 2010 15:47

3Cs presents at the NC Rising Conference on Saturday, March 27 at 4pm in Saunders 213 at UNC-CH

Radical Map-Making

We are radical mappers... we make maps that are provocative, that ask questions, that reconfigure and re-imagine public space. A map is not only a product of careful research, a reflection of the world as 'just so,' but a proposition, a suggestion for the way the world could, and at times should, be.

In this workshop, we'll talk about our own work as radical map-making collective and show some tools and techniques for DIY mapmaking before launching into a collective discussion about the potentials and drawbacks of map-making and GIS for radical movements.

On March 4, tens of thousands of students and workers across the U.S. will be taking action against budget cuts, tuition hikes, and the privatization of education as part of the March 4 National Day of Action to Defend Education. From California to New York, Chicago to Tuscaloosa, Boston to Milwaukee, Seattle to Knoxville, Gainsville to Asheville, and all points in between, students and workers will be standing up and speaking out on March 4 to defend education in what is shaping up to be one of biggest days of action this country has seen in years.

We'll march to South Building, the administration building, and make our voices against the cuts to education and for equal access to education for all loud and clear! There will be a symbolic and peaceful sit-in at South Building at the end of the march.
