Lucas LaRochelle is a Canadian artist and designer based in Montreal, Quebec. LaRochelle is best known as the creator of the community-based online collaborative mapping platform Queering the Map. In this talk, LaRochelle will discuss this project and related works.

Queering the Map is a community-generated counter-mapping project that digitally archives queer experience in relation to physical space. The platform provides an interface to collaboratively archive the cartography of queer memory—from park benches to the middle of the ocean—in order to preserve our histories and unfolding realities, which continue to be invalidated, contested, and erased. From collective action to stories of coming out, encounters with violence to moments of rapturous love, Queering the Map functions as a living archive of queer life. By mapping out LGBTQ2IA+ experience in its intersectional permutations, the project works to generate affinity across difference and beyond borders.

LaRochelle's talk will be from 2 to 3 p.m. You can attend the talk in person at Hunt Library or watch a livestream via Zoom. Whether you plan to attend in person or watch the livestream, register for the event by clicking the registration link above. All registrants will receive the Zoom link shortly before the event.

Join us after the talk in the Game Lab at Hunt Library from 3 to 5 p.m. to interact with the Queering the Map platform and chat informally with LaRochelle.
