Jin-Kyu Jung coauthors “(Un)Mapping the Digital Landscape of Medical Crowdfunding”

AS faculty member Jin-Kyu Jung has published a coauthored article, “(Un)Mapping the Digital Landscape of Medical Crowdfunding: A Critical and Creative Geovisualization Pedagogy for Public Engagement in Livingmaps Review. This collaborative paper describes an interdisciplinary higher education project of publicly-oriented scholarship to remake and unmap the digital landscapes of crowdfunding for health needs on sites like GoFundMe in the U.S. It shows how moving from the persistent limitations of positivistic and quantitative social scientific mapping of crowdfunding to more speculative and humanistic ones can be a powerful tool for higher education and public pedagogies.
