With apologies for
We look forward to
In this workshop, we examine and experiment with the cultural and political potential of ‘memory through art’ in a geographical enquiry. We will facilitate creative practise, discussion, collaboration, and for those interested, produce a Special Issue of Australian
Geographer (2022). The workshop explores the themes of memory, art, and geographical knowledge to motivate a creative dialogue among geographers, artists, and activists. We ask what does art do to geographies of memory? Moving beyond methodological debates
we focus on art mediums as these bring to light the affective and political forces of place speaking to timely and important issues such as climate change, migration, peace, and conflict. The proposed workshop will also centre artistic interventions from Southern
epistemologies as these continue to be underrepresented in Australian geography and humanities.
The workshop is organised by Laura Rodriguez Castro, Diti Bhattacharya, Kaya Barry and Prof. Barbara Pini
