Education / Bio

Sébastien Caquard is an assistant professor in the Department of Geography Planning and Environment. He completed his PhD in France at the Université J. Monnet de Saint-Etienne. His dissertation examined the integration of multimedia maps into public participation processes within the context of water management. Prior to moving to Concordia, he served as a research associate at the Dartmouth Flood Observatory at Dartmouth College (New Hampshire, USA), as a post-doctoral fellow at the Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre (Carleton University, Ottawa), and as an invited researcher in the Département de Géographie of the Université de Montréal. In his previous research project Sébastien Caquard examined the technological, artistic and scientific frontiers of cybercartography, more specifically in the emerging field of cinematic cartography (www.atlascine.org). In his current research, he seeks to explore further the complex relationships between places and narratives, through the mapping of a range of fictional and real stories, including stories from novels and films as well as from migrants and indigenous people. Sébastien Caquard is also the chair of the Commission on “Art and Cartography” of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) (http://artcarto.wordpress.com/) and the co-fonder of the collective blog (e)space & fiction (http://spacefiction.wordpress.com/).
