The theme of the 21st installment of the Kenneth Nebenzahl, Jr., Lectures in the History of Cartography is “Mapping as Performance,” addressing the ways in which people create and share maps through action in space.

“Mapping as Performance” brings scholars together from several disciplines, including dance, Indigenous studies, literature, geography, and history. The two days of lectures have been organized into panels focusing on four sub-themes:

  • Performing Space, Place, and History in Indigenous North America
  • Travel as Mapping
  • Mapping Dance
  • Surveying as Performance.

A detailed schedule and speaker list will be posted soon.
