LSE Cities research seminar | StoryMapping Johannesburg: Urban atmospheres and digital site-writing
Speakers: Hanna Baumann, Senior Research Fellow, Institute for Global Prosperity, UCL; Ed Charlton, British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow, LSE Cities; Jill Weintroub, Life in the City Postdoctoral Fellow, School of Governance, University of Witwatersrand.

In this research seminar, we review the initial output from a collaborative site-writing project on Johannesburg. Using a series of GIS StoryMaps to situate some of the atmospheric forms that structure the city, we will reflect on the critical as well as more creative contributions that this atmospheric attention to urban space might encourage. In this, we draw ideas from the work of urban thinkers like Matthew Gandy and Jane Rendell, examining some the allied perils that also emerge with this type of practice. We particularly encourage others engaged in digital modes of site-writing and urban mapping to attend. This seminar will serve as an opportunity to share ideas and reflect on their potential.
