Mapping the fields. Geographies of knowledge production. Et forskningsprosjekt om romlige-digitale-arkivale sammenfiltringer
Mapping the Fields: Geographies of Knowledge Production, is a
humanities experiment, exploring fieldworks of the nineteenth century. By studying
fieldworks, the project investigates production and circulation of knowledge,
and the role of space and place in these practices. Furthermore, and that is the
concern of this article, Mapping the Fields is one possible answer to an ongoing
discussion about how the building of a database, data model, and digital maps
may be fruitful for research related to Norwegian Folklore Archives. The project
engages the general idea of mapping as a process within network relations. In this
article, it is argued that concepts developed in relations between geography and
literature studies are fruitful within a Culture History approach to Spatial History.
The article problematizes how “the digital” stabilizes “facts” and contributes to
inspiration, new research questions and new knowledge.
