Hacked Landscapes: Tensions, Borders, and Positionality in Spatial Literacy
Schmidt, Sandra J.
Journal of Geography, v116 n3 p99-108 2017
By focusing on critical geographies, landscape, and spatial literacy, this article evaluates a semester-long spatial justice project conducted in a preservice teacher education program. The analysis recognizes the limitations of reading the products literally as a means of comprehending spatial representation. It expands the analysis by hacking the products and producing new landscapes to read against or up against the products as sociospatial texts. It considers the deployment of landscape concepts--borders, the representation of tension, and the gaze and subjectivity of the reader-authors--as central elements of spatial literacy that is of consequence.
