CORE 003 SC - Radical Cartographies


Maps appear to be self-evident but, like all representations, are socially and historically constructed. Maps interpret the world, most commonly by delineating territory, nations, and boundaries. Accordingly, they have often been used as tools of power, conquest, and domination. This course questions common understandings of geographies of the present by deconstructing maps, developing a critical understanding of cartography, and ultimately, constructing alternative cartographies. Students will become familiar with critical geography literature on mapping and "counter-mapping," as well as artistic, geographic, and activist approaches to radical cartographies. Assignments include counter-mapping exercises and development of a final project of the student's choosing.

Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Once in two years
