Thu Dec 15 08:38:09 PST 2022

 *Wednesday January 18, 2023*
12:00pm - 1:30pm ET *(9:00am -10:30am PT)*

This webinar will present two innovative cartographic approaches designed
to map collections of stories and interviews. The first one will be
structured around Atlascine <http://geomedialab.org/atlascine.html>, a
free, online and open-source software developed to map collections of
stories. Through the full interaction between media and maps, Atlascine
offers new ways of navigating within and between audiovisual stories. Here,
the map is envisioned not only as a way to reveal places as described in
stories, but also to expand the possibilities of accessing, listening,
visualizing and connecting these stories. The second cartographic approach
will be devoted to the exploration of the inner parts of these stories
using "sensibility mapping.” Sensibility mapping is a creative way of
investigating the intimate, emotional and personal dimensions of stories.

Through this webinar, participants can expect to familiarize themselves
with the potential, limits and complementarity of both approaches to expand
the access to (corpuses of) interviews.
