Will Count towards the SAS - Art History Major and Minor

This course focuses on the ways different cultures throughout time represented space visually notably in the format of maps. It will use twelve of the most notable cartographic works produced since 700 BC as key images to introduce the rich legacy of spatial representation. Each map represented its time’s world view and/or influenced the perception of the peoples of a particular culture and moment in history. We will use as a starting point each week a specific moment in time and location in reference to our key image. The course will not argue for a “progressive scientific” history of maps but rather that humanity needed to see earth in different ways given various points in time and space. Thus it explores how viewing space can be shaped following a complex context in which different competing factors are involved. We will use Jerry Brotton’s “A History of the World in 12 Maps” as a textbook (Penguin Books, 2014) and other readings, which will be posted on sakai.
