Wikicommons

Samuel Dunn, A General Map of the World, or Terraqueous Globe with all the New Discoveries and Marginal Delineations, Containing the Most Interesting Particulars in the Solar, Starry and Mundane System., 1794.

Episode 116: Maps (They Don't Love You Like I Love You)

We’re joined by fellow Art History Babe and map lover Mariah Briel to parse through all sorts of theoretically challenging ideas concerning maps and how we document space. Join us as we discuss map making and its relationship to cultural ignorance, the fundamental issues with making a 3D thing into a 2D thing, and how maps operate as both an art object and a scientific object.
