Welcome to the blog for Spaces for the Future! This weekly blog features methods, epistemologies, themes, and discussion pieces, all focused on underscapes, urban refabulations, and mobilities. How does religion grow and change in an urban environment? What do we mean when we say “religiosity?” Just what are underscapes, urban refabulations, and mobilities, and how can we see them around us?
Each week leading up to the May 9 symposium, Spirited Topographies, we will be highlighting not only a particular topic, but how a member of Spaces for the Future applies the topic to his or her work. Last week, we discussed photo-essays as a method for multimedia presentations and featured Co-PI Smriti Srinivas’s photo-essay, “Placing Urban Sacrality.”
Check back regularly for new posts. Our blog is open for comments, and we welcome spirited, respectful discussions.
