Geog 375U Maps, Culture and Society

Explores mapping as a way of understanding human geography. We discuss how maps are embedded in social context, and how they shape the places and spaces in which we live. Topics include historical, cultural, and contemporary usage of maps, the power of maps and critical cartography, participatory mapping and mental maps, and changing mapping technologies.
