How can we make maps to aid in our personal endeavors?
Maps are everywhere. So much so, that we take our map mindset for granted. This class cracks open what that mindset is and how it can be used for purposes beyond geography. Students will experiment with their own mapmaking endeavors and learn about a variety of cartographic traditions. Ultimately, students will use mapping to exercise design skills in the service of memory and aspiration. Part of the class will take place at Stanford's Rumsey Center, one of the best private map collections in the world.
