Mapping Emergence is currently expanded further as an independent initiative and a dedicated blog has been created for this purpose. The Mapping Emergence Blog functions as a digital platform, promoting the initiative’s series of past and forthcoming international activities and projects, developing an online forum, facilitating the announcements of its members activities, and supporting the dissemination of the relevant resources including research material and publications.
