Maps are works of art. Maps are diagrams to get us from one place to another. Maps define our present space. Maps construct our view of the past and help us envision our future. Maps are static. Maps are ever-changing. We map our world and map ourselves based on our own perceptions, what we see, what we feel, what we believe, what we know. Even as we create our own maps of our space and our time, we are simultaneously mapped by others both near and far. In this class, we will make our own maps and look at the maps of others, maps from around the world and maps from just next door, maps from the past and maps of our future. We will discuss what maps mean, how they are used, abused, made, and remade; how they can be read and misread; and their importance both to society and to self.
