In November 2016, the sixth edition of the 'Urban Pamphleteer' series was published - Open Source Housing Crisis – looking at how communication technologies can engage critically with the underlying logics of London’s rapidly escalating housing crisis. In this Urban Pamphleteer seminar we have invited Erin McElroy, co-founder of the San Francisco-based Anti-Eviction Mapping Project, to discuss how digital mapping can make visible what gentrification and displacement make invisible.
