Chapter 1 introduces this book by establishing the context as one of intercultural reconciliation, primarily in the context of residential/boarding schools in North America. In addition to a literature review of relevant multidisciplinary research, a brief introduction to the book's contents and some background on the Residential Schools legacy in Canada, the chapter reflects on four guiding themes that are revisited throughout the book: David Crocker's (1999, 2000) conception of reconciliation in a transitional justice context; Pierre Bourdieu's (1992) approach to reflexive presentation, which is useful when it comes to tracking emergent mapping practices (Kitchin, 2008; Kitchin and Dodge, 2007; Turnbull, 2007); David Turnbull's (2000) ‘talk, templates, tradition’ analytical framework for understanding ‘arational’ approaches to development; and a working distinction between ‘implicit’ and ‘explicit’ cartography.
