Robbins Library, 416 Rush Rhees Library Free Event

Free Event

Rossell Hope Robbins Library is excited to present a three-part series of talks by noted cartographic historian Chet Van Duzer. This is the opening lecture.

"Maps and Power" will discuss how specific maps show the various ways in which the intimate relationshp between maps and political power, from classical antiquity to the twentieth century. Examples include maps as symbols of power, the capture of maps and resultant military gains, and the replacing of indigenous place names with imposed ones.

All talks are open to the public. Please contact Anna Siebach-Larsen if accommodations are needed.
