Maps shouldn’t be all that hard to read, but sometimes there is so much data and information packed into them we miss the little details that can reveal a lot about the politics or biases of maps. Maps are an engaging way to visualize data and gain knowledge, but need to be viewed with a critical eye.
Participants will be lead through a discussion on the history and creation of maps. Following the discussion, participants will get to use their new critical map reading skills to examine historic and current maps. Materials will be provided.
