Professor Sébastien Caquard

Sébastien Caquard is a geographer and a mapmaker interested in mapping stories to better understand the complex relationships that exist between places, narratives, memories and maps. His research lies at the intersection of cartography, oral history and the humanities. As the founder and director of the Geomedia Lab, he has led the development of Atlascine, an open source mapping application designed to map collections of stories and to reflect on cartographic processes and practices. Atlascine has been used to produce several online atlases, including The Atlas Tell Me about Riopelle and The Atlas of Rwandan Life Stories that was exhibited at the Kigali Memorial Genocide (Rwanda) in June 2024.  

Sébastien Caquard is Professor in the Department of Geography, Planning and Environment at Concordia University (Montréal Tiohtià:ke) as well as the former Co-Director of the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS).
