Exercises in Spatial Justice at Maynooth University, Ireland


I created and ran a fieldwork module 'Exercises in Spatial Justice' with Prof Karen Till at the Department of Geography, Maynooth University this year with her MA Spatial Justice students. The 4-week module highlighted self-reflexive, embodied knowledges as a means of understanding the dramatic reduction of personal space people experience in the Direct Provision system in Ireland. Students and instructors actively engaged in movement and body-based exercises, and it was heartening to see how everyone responded to these stay-home, one-person, non-verbal movement-based fieldwork projects.
You will see some of my learnings from the above reflected in my contribution to TULCA Festival of Visual Arts this year.
