Working Group on Mapping Diasporas (2015-2016)

During the Academic Year 2015-2016, the planning for Mapping Diasporas includes the work of a multi-disciplinary Working Group. Its participants hold monthly meetings, held at The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life, UC Berkeley, to discuss individual projects and mapping platforms.

In the course of each session, working group participants conduct “hands-on” (but with gloves…) research on select collection items that presents pertinent research questions relating to the topics of diaspora, cultural mobility, multi-locational relations, provenance, and geolocation, and explore a variety of platforms that allow online “mapping” and engage in a wide-ranging set of conversations about cultural objects.
