Mapping Nations and Territories

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic lecture/debate/seminar


Working on my current monograph on "Mapping Germanies. Cartography, Territories and Nation Building in the nineteenth century" I was invited in April 2011 by a local school (Lawhead Primary School) to work with children (age 7-9) on a project on mapping and mapmaking. While drawing on my own research, the session allowed for explaining the connected nature between science, state, nation and community while at the same time providing some insights in how the university functions.
