Let’s talk about: Maps and Storytelling @ Metcalf Room
Oct 4 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Let's talk about: Maps and Storytelling @ Metcalf Room | Scotland | United Kingdom

We would like to invite you to the first of the Centre for the Study of Philanthropy and Public Good’s ‘Lets talk about…’ reading groups for 2017/18 on Wednesday 4 October between 2 and 330pm in the Metcalf Room.

This session is on the topic of ‘maps and storytelling’. We welcome anyone interested in this topic in relation to research generally as well as in relation to philanthropy. Two readings provide a background framing for the discussion of the role, characteristics and issues that arise in the production and use of maps.

Carolan, M.S. (2009) ‘“This Is Not a Biodiversity Hotspot”: The Power of Maps and Other Images in the Environmental Sciences’, Society & Natural Resources, 22(3), pp. 278–286.

Palmer, M.H. (2016) ‘Kiowa Storytelling Around a Map’, in The Digital Arts and Humanities. pp. 63–73.

We hope that the discussion will inform the development of a new CSPPG project ‘Philanthropy in Scotland: An Online Story Map’. This project will examine how philanthropy has shaped three of Scotland’s cities drawing on archival research and stakeholder workshops. The research is orientated around three questions (i) what’s the role and history of philanthropists and philanthropic activity? (ii) what are the motives and drivers of philanthropy?; and (iii) what role and influence have philanthropic gifts had? This project will culminate in an online story map that offers a spatial and temporal account of philanthropy in Scotland. The map focuses on philanthropy within the areas of St Andrews, Edinburgh and Glasgow, allowing users to identify and learn about places of philanthropic interest.
