On the 16th of December 2016 Geomedia PhD student Bianka Plüschke-Altof was invited to a Social Sciences colloquium at the Humboldt-University. Under the title „Re-inventing Setomaaa. The Challenges of Fighting Rural Stigmatization“ she introduced her first research results. On the case of Setomaa the presenter discussed the influence of spatial images on rural development in Estonia. The presentation was followed by a lively debate on the role of spatial images and how it is possible to locally influence them.
