Maps, ethnography, and forced migration [guest lecture]

This guest lecture was prepared for INTD 358 Ethnographic Approaches to Development, taught by Diana Allan at the Department of Anthropology and Institute for the Study of International Development, McGill University. During this lecture, I explore maps as method to augment traditional ethnographic approaches (as similarly described by Low, 2014) . Working hand in hand, cartography and descriptive-observational writing make up what I call ‘ethnographic mapping’ (Parent, 2020).
