Cartography MSc graduate Mihir Desai in conversation with Crossmopollinate

Cartography M.Sc. graduate Mihir Desai (11th intake) participated in a podcast hosted by ‘Crossmopollinate’, the research lab of ‘Co/Lab’, which is a collective of researchers who aim to implement transcultural methods to solve real-world issues. This first episode of ‘Bee-Side’, the podcast series, was recorded as part of Crossmopollinate’s Handbook of Urban Transformations. This handbook is a part of the“Urban Transformation and Placemaking” project supported by DAAD and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Germany. In the podcast, Mihir discusses issues of architecture design and urban planning with respect to the environment in Mumbai, India. During the discussion, he employs a theory of reconciling epistemic conflicts in cartography which concerns the arguments of map conception and claims of objective representation.
