By Craig Dalton and Tim Stallmann This paper defines counter-mapping; outlines its multiple theorizations; briefly describes three relevant case studies, The Detroit Geographical Expedition and Institute, Mapping Police Violence, and the Counter-Cartographies Collective; and concludes with a few hard-learned considerations from counter-mapping that are directly pertinent for data-oriented projects focused on change.

Clashing Cartographies, Migrating Maps: Mapping and the Politics of Mobility at the External Borders of E.U.rope By: Maribel Casas-Cortés, Sebastian Cobarrubias, Charles Heller, and Lorenzo Pezzani By focusing on the role that maps and mapping practices play within the politics of migration - the contentious field of actions and relations which determines who can move and in what condition –, we show how cartography is in fact used both as a practice for the control and government of mobility as well as a tool for advocating, facilitating and even embodying, border crossing.

Beyond the European Union’s Neighbourhood: Liberation Geographies in the Mediterranean Sebastián Cobarrubias The notion of a Mediterranean Neighbourhood points to how a specific geopolitical space is scripted, imagined and then translated into practice through the European Union’s foreign policy towards this region. I contend that the Arab Spring took place within this European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) framework contesting many of its underlying principles.

A War on Mobility: The Border Empire Strikes Back By Maribel Casas-Cortés and Sebastian Cobarrubias Book Chapter in Ways of Knowing Cities This essay builds on the idea of a war on mobility, interrogating migration through the “war” being waged against it and through the territorial technologies exporting borders and monitoring movement into the European Union.

Care-tizenship: precarity, social movements, and the deleting/re-writing of citizenship By Maribel Casas-Cortés This paper explores how alternative concepts of citizenship have developed within debates among precarity organizing prior to and after the financial crisis in Europe. Concretely, feminist precarity collectives in Spain came up with the play-on-words of ‘Care-tizenship’ to evoke a different notion of political belonging with updated collective rights. The original Spanish term is arguably the result of a typo: an accidental switching of the order of vowels in the word ciudadanía resulted in cuidadanía, which totally changed the root word: from city to care.

Alternative Cartographies - Building Collective Power
» 3.0 MiB - 3,748 hits - June 13, 2012
Tim Stallmann's MA thesis, giving some detail of recent 3Cs work in London and Chapel Hill. Alternative Cartographies Building Collective Power serves as a tool-kit of sorts for alternative cartographic practice. Chapter 1 gives a brief history of critical cartography, summarizing what is meant by “Western state cartography,” and giving a few illustrative examples of alternative cartographic practice. Chapter 2 explores what can happen when a group comes together to make a map or maps, with the intention of building new collective social formations through map-making. Chapter 3 draws on concepts from Community-Based Participatory Research to look at the interaction between a cartographer or group of cartographers (as “experts”) working alongside other people who are not involved in map-making themselves but nevertheless have a stake in the maps and what they depict.
