Sébastien Caquard is an associate professor in the department of Geography, Planning and Environment at Concordia University (Montréal). His research lies at the intersection between mapping, technologies and the humanities. In his current research, he seeks to explore how maps can help to better understand the complex relationships that exist between places and narratives. This research involves the mapping of a range of fictional and real stories, which include cinematographic ones, as well as stories from refugees and from indigenous people. As the director of the Geomedia lab, he has led the development of an online narrative mapping application (www.atlascine.org), and he is involved in a variety of exciting projects that require alternative ways of thinking cartographically (http://geomedialab.org/). He is also the chair of the Commission on“Art and Cartography” of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) (http://artcarto.wordpress.com/).
