Deaf geographies, and other worlds.
Extended Seminar: “Mapping the Deaf community”
Maps explore the spatial relationships between specific features the map aims to represent, such as political boundaries, population, physical features, natural resources, climates, elevation and economic activities. The Deaf community engage in different embodied spaces, where their experiences and consciousness are manifested in materialistic and spatial forms. The “Mapping the Deaf community” seminar brings together the current Deaf-related mapping initiatives in the UK.
