"The Power of Maps and the Politics of Borders"
A conference hosted by the American Philosophical Society featuring two Haverford professors.
From October 10-12, 2019, this three-day conference will be held in conjunction with the APS Museum’s exhibit, Mapping a Nation: Shaping the Early American Republic, which traces the creation and use of maps from the mid-eighteenth century through the early republic to show the different ways in which maps produced and extended the physical, political, and ideological boundaries of the new nation while creating and reinforcing structural inequalities.
Featuring former Haverford Visiting Assistant Professor Nicholas Glisserman, and current Haverford professors Darin Hayton and Bethel Saler.
