Archives Display: “Spatial Relations” (3rd FL)

“Spatial Relations” is a mini exhibit of cartographic materials from Archives and Special Collections. It demonstrates a variety of representations of geographic space on paper and meditates on the role of map-making in empire, environment, and international relations. It also explores maps as covetable objects, highlighting the problems of map prints being removed from antiquarian books. The display is on the third floor of the library, between the stairs and the elevator, and will be available for viewing all semester during library hours.
