Usage of spatial metaphor in tellings of the crisis

Research

Environmental effects of crisis discourses

Environmental crises as challenges for society as a whole (such as the COVID-19 pandemic), but also insidious crises (such as climate change) form a special field of discourse. In the effort to arrive at assessments or to justify them under high uncertainty or high pressure to act, patterns of argumentation are used in political but also in everyday language and make complexity manageable but also are prone to fallacy (cf. image schemata; Lakoff/Johnson 1980). To reveal the inner mechanisms of these discourses and their change over time with a special focus on body- and space-related metaphors is the subject of this research focus.

Theory-grounded geo-modelling

Maps are unsuitable as a representation of individual experiences of place (Cresswell 2004). Models of semantic, visual, and mobility experiences in local (everyday or tourist) spaces are thus a research gap that can bear a number of further applications. Text analysis enables the comparison of the semantic context in which places are negotiated. Analyses of visual material provide information about foci of attention, and mobility analyses provide insight into everyday worlds of experience. To close this modeling gap, to increase the geoinforrmatic expression possibilities and at the same time to bring it closer to the claim of informed theory-based social research, is the subject of this research focus.

Experiences of digital environments

Geographic perspectives and analyses of film and media are long established (Cresswell and Dixon 2002) and consider film as an approach to interrogating everyday perceptions of space. Traditional dichotomies such as ‘civilization’ versus ‘wilderness’ form topoi that lend themselves to viewers in search of the escapist fantasy (Kirsch 2002). This perspective can also be applied to video games with the concept of environmental storytelling (Ascher 2014) (e.g. Günzel 2019) and helps to understand which structures guide individual experiences of digital environments. Mobile location-based games introduce an interaction element with location movement that video games lack. They are interesting for a closer geodidactic examination because they not only support the social interaction of players, but also the individual appropriation of a space, e.g. of an urban neighborhood or a nature park.

Geo-content Delivery

Common WebGIS systems are currently just beginning to integrate functions of classic content management systems such as structured release processes, versioning, multi-language support, and search and filter options. In this way, apps can be developed for the first time that consider the continuous content acquisition process to lie inside the app, integrate location-based multimedia into the app, and enable on-site participation. The further development of these approaches in application-related projects with application partners is the subject of this research focus.
