Book Release: Cartographies of Differences, Dr Ulrike M Vieten
Queen's University Research Fellow, Dr Ulrike M Vieten has released a new book (co-edited collection)
Cartographies of Differences: Interdisciplinary Perspectives investigates the process of learning how to live with individual and group differences in the twenty-first century and examines the ambivalences of contemporary cosmopolitanism. Engaging with the concept of ‘critical cartography’, it emphasizes the structural impact of localities on the experiences of those living with difference, while trying to develop an account of the counter-mappings that follow spatial and social transformations in today’s world. The contributors focus on visual, normative and cultural embodiments of difference, examining dynamic conflicts at local sites that are connected by the processes of Europeanization and globalization.
