Throughout the years StreetSpace has had many collaborators from academia, government and NGOs

Manuel João Ramos

He is associate professor in the Department of Anthropology and researcher at the Center for International Studies at ISCTE-IUL. He is currently coordinator of the Central Library of African Studies, co-editor of the AEGIS series of Brill Publishers and one of the coordinators of the Thematic Group: Africa in the Indian Ocean of the European network AEGIS.

Manuel Ramos, Maxim Bolt and Paul Nugent coined the term Localography during the AEGIS African Studies PhD course in Cagliari. They created the term to provoke anthropology students to think about what it means to do ‘fieldwork’. ‘Localography’ questions the relationship between ethnography and anthropology challenging an uncritical survival of the prefix ‘ethno’ in the past of the discipline. This is replaced by the importance of being and studying in a local context, instead of giving primacy to theoretical-analytical models.

Birgit Hausleitner

is an architect and urbanist, lecturer and researcher at the Chair Urban Design—Theory and Methods in the Department of Urbanism, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, TU Delft. She studied architecture at TU Vienna and at the Politecnico di Milano and urbanism at TU Delft and at IUAV Venice. Birgit's research comprises work on urban diversity and mixed-use cities.

Her research puts the multi-scalar and configurational aspect of urban morphological and socio-spatial conditions central that facilitate, introduce or improve, combinations of living and working, with special interest on spaces for urban manufacturing and micro-economic activities. Moreover, she is involved in developing multi-scalar analytic methods, as well as multi-scalar and multi-actor design instruments, more specifically pattern languages.
