Ordering the Unknown: The European Mapping Tradition from 1600 to 1860
Stokes Hall, 3rd Floor South
September 24 – December 20, 2014
Curated by the students in last spring's "Early Maps and Distant Places" class in the History Department, this exhibit explores how European cartographers of the early modern era used maps to organize, classify and lay claim to parts of the world imperfectly known to them. As in other courses in the "Making History Public" series, students met at the Burns Library, using that collection's resources to investigate a historical topic. High quality reproductions of materials from the Burns Library, and student-authored exhibit text about those items, comprise the exhibition.
