Reimagining Space and Gender Histories: Creating the City of Women London
The City of Women London map is a collaboration between Reni Eddo-Lodge, Rebecca Solnit, Emma Watson, cartographer Molly Roy, designer Lia Tjandra, and Haymarket books. The map renamed the stations of the London Underground after women and non-binary people who have made extraordinary contributions to London. Presenting a counter-history of London, it views the city through the lens of women’s history, and invites the viewer to imagine what its spaces might look like were the contributions of women to be foregrounded.
It was created in partnership with Transport for London, the Women of the World Foundation and University College London. The UCL team, Dr Leah Lovett, Dr Duncan Hay and Montaz Marché, were responsible for creating the interactive version of this map and in this seminar, they will outline the process of the map’s creation, its impact and its role in striving towards a more inclusive history of London.
