Mapping Loss in the Anthropocene

4130 Posvar Hall

Workshop Series Exploring Our Connection to Climate-Related Upheavals 

Mapping Loss in the Anthropocene is a Year of Creativity event co-sponsored by the Global Studies Center and the World History Center.  Students will have the opportunity to reflect on human-driven climate change and to create maps that capture or express their relationships to - changing sea levels, favorite natural locations, species impacts, affective responses -- it's up each participant how to engage this topic. There will be three hands-on workshops, on February 17, March 16, and April 6, each covering different techniques for mapping, including critical- or counter-cartography, GIS and digital mapping, and artistic approaches.  By the end of the workshops, participants will have conceived and created their own maps.
