Geographers and other social scientists have increasingly investigated the relationships between perception of ourselves, our space and our relationship to power via storytelling and ethnographic observation. There is increasing interest in feminist geographies to foreground the implications of intersectional approaches. This virtual paper session will explore the implications of intersectional approaches within constructions of power and the perception of space among marginalized communities (and their histories and art) via digital stories, carto-graphic stories, as well as community-based theater productions and documentaries.
