Visualization of Processes of Spatialization
Prof. Dr. Sebastian Lentz & Dr. Jana Moser (IfL Leipzig & SFB 1199, Leipzig U)
|Date||Wednesday, 11 April 2018 – Wednesday, 13 June 2018|
|Location||SFB 1199 | Strohsackpassage | Nikolaistraße 6-10 | 5th floor | 04109 Leipzig|
The seminar addresses the challenges of developing innovative and appropriate forms of visualizing processes of spatialization. Based on the empirical and conceptual work at the SFB, new proposals for visualizing research results and problems will be introduced. Visualization may go beyond the scope of maps, but can also encompass other forms of making visible or visually legible research results and problems. We understand by visualization a kind of mapping but have to accept that current cartography has often not the tools to visualize appropriately new spatial formats but remains bound to the dominance of territorialized formats. It is therefore important for our search process that we do not fall back into traditional cartographic patterns where they are not appropriate. Thus, it is here not about finding a map designed by others, but rather about starting an open process to find the appropriate expression of research results and concept developed in the SFB.
Hence, the seminar has two main goals: one is to find the right visualization for individual projects’ results, and the second is to engage in a joint debate on our findings via the possibilities (or difficulties) to visualize them.
Starting with 15-minute presentations from the project groups in each session, there will then be enough time for a joint discussion on how to further develop the proposed visualization, backed by the expertise of Jana Moser and Sebastian Lentz (both IfL Leipzig) on visualizations of spatial problems and processes of respatialization.
The seminar takes place Wednesdays, 3-5 pm, at the SFB 1199, Strohsackpassage.

Prof. Sebastian Lentz (IfL Leipzig & SFB 1199, Leipzig U)
Sebastian Lentz is the director of the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography and professor of regional geography at the Leipzig University (Germany). He studied geography, German philology, and educational science at the universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim in Germany. He is currently involved in research projects looking at mobilities and migration within successor states of the Soviet Union as well as co-leading, together with Jana Moser, the SFB project C5 on maps of globalization, exploring the productions and reproductions of perceptions and knowledge of globalization through (carto)graphical visualization from the 1860s until today. Sebastian Lentz has additional research interests in social and cultural geography, as well as transformation processes with a regional focus on successor states of the Soviet Union in Europe.
Dr. Jana Moser (IfL Leipzig & SFB 1199, Leipzig U)
Jana Moser is a senior researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography in Leipzig (Germany) where she works as the manager of the working group on cartography. She earned her PhD in cartography from the Technical University of Dresden (Germany) in 2007 with her study on the history of cartography in Namibia. Her research focuses on visualization methods, the production and use of maps in new media, and the history of cartography and map making. Together with Sebastian Lentz, she leads the SFB project C5 maps of globalization, exploring the productions and reproductions of perceptions and knowledge of globalization through (carto)graphical visualization from the 1860s until today.
