Sébastien Caquard

Associate Professor in Geography, Concordia University

I am an associate professor in Geography at Concordia University (Montréal). My research lies at the intersection between mapping, technologies and the humanities. In my current research, I seek to explore how maps can help to better understand the complex relationships that exist between places and narratives. This research involves the mapping of a range of fictional and real stories, which include stories from refugees and from indigenous people. As the director of the Geomedia lab, I have led the development of an online narrative mapping application (Atlascine), and I am involved in a variety of exciting projects that require alternative ways of thinking cartographically (http://geomedialab.org/).
