In this issue of GEOGRAPHY REVIEW, Georgina Endfield and Jacqueline Waldock discuss conceptualisations of home during the Covid-19 pandemic. This project drew on hand-drawn maps created by participants as a way of understanding the way they felt about their home places. This is an interesting approach to explore the range of ways in which people understand and interact with places. The examples of maps drawn by children as part of the Mapping Homes project can be seen at: www.tinyurl.com/57n7nmk5.
The Mapping Homes project offers inspiration for using such maps as source data in an NEA. You could, for example, ask older residents to draw two maps: one representing the way they feel about a place as it was in the past, and one representing the present. Alternatively, you could ask different groups of participants, such as young people and adults, to use mapping to explain how they feel about, and interact with, a place. This could highlight how these groups experience the same place differently.
