Map as Critical Pedagogy

Maharashtra (Nature Society Series) by Yemuna Sunny, Bhopal: Eklavya, 2020; 80.

Eklavya’s extraordinary nature-society series construes geography as an important signpost of inquiry. The complexity of the environment and well-being of human and other life forms can substan­tially be churned out, along with understanding it beyond territorial gratification in the form of unravelling the layers of processes and its offshoots like the place, people, questions and alternative. Using geography for people per se necessitates rearranging the engagement with the map as critical pedagogy. This refutes its reductionist use for homogenisation, territorialisation, and empiricisation of beings. Yemuna Sunny, the author of Maharashtra, under the nature–society series, metamorphoses the map substantially into critical pedagogy.
