Spatial Analysis

I approach the topic of space as a visual and material culture – an active medium for constructing a spectrum of intersecting identities. On my blog VisualizingSpace.com I share my thoughts, favorite sites, and ongoing projects connecting spatiality and visuality.

As a digital humanities component of my first book project, I am in the process of using GIS to map census data onto my maps of activist-created public green spaces.  These parks existed within a constellation of postwar Left political territories as well as major urban renewal projects. Now in the process of pursuing external funding through NSF for this geo-spatial research, visualizing this information will help us understand why these anarchist sites emerged where they did that will provide further insight into the relationship between activist identities and place-making.
