Cartographic Memory: Social Movement Activism and the Production of
In this presentation I examine 1960s and
1970s Chicanx activism in Oakland, CA. I underscore how activists
remembered their social movement participation by emphasizing their
deep emotional connections with neighborhood projects. In so doing,
they intricately mapped their contribution to neighborhood
improvement. I contend that the fact that activists remembered their
work in geographic form opens up a broader register for how we
measure social movement impacts. By
seriously considering cultural politics rooted
through place, I
a theoretical and methodological understanding of space as archive of
social movement activism. For additional information, please contact Natalie Koch at email@example.com.
