I just finished recording too many lectures about maps for the genealogy class. I guess the number of lectures reflects both the complexity and diversity of the topic, and my passion for maps.
As I was perusing my e-mail this morning, I noticed the new JSTOR DAILY newsletter. In it was an article about maps aptly titled, "Finding Your Place by Looking at Maps" http://daily.jstor.org/uncatalogued-finding-your-place-by-looking-at-maps/ I couldn't resist adding the column to next week's session.
Can you find your place on the map?
