This article demonstrates how, through the employment of a critical “social cartography”—the creation of maps addressing questions of location and power in the social milieu—social research may move one step further as it struggles to distance itself from the positivistic restraints of modernism. Social cartography suggests not a synthesis, but the further opening of dialogue among diverse social players, including those individuals and cultural clusters who want their “mininarratives” included in the social discourse. The authors propose that social cartography has the potential to be a useful discourse style for demonstrating the attributes and capacities, as well as the development and perceptions of people and cultures operating within the social milieu. It offers a new and effective method for visually demonstrating the sensitivity of postmodern influences for opening social dialogue, especially to those who have experienced disenfranchisement by modernism.
