Christoph Fink

critical cartographer
social geographer
urbanist

I am a researcher at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna. Embedded in their project CoRe – Configurations of Remoteness I research the role of maps as an analytical tool and as an outreach channel for ethnographic research.

My interests lie in the ontological and epistemological nature(s) of maps, cartographic discourses and power relations, urban transformation processes and the discourses about them, and the way city, society and map shape one another.

I am also good at producing maps, with a focus on interactive web maps.
