The Politics of Maps: Cartographic Constructions of Israel/Palestine  

How have maps become entangled with politics, territorial claim-making, and nation-state building in Israel/Palestine? This talk will focus on how various actors, institutions and governments engage in “map wars” in order to further different and often incommensurable geopolitical visions of contested territories. 

Christine Leuenberger, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer in the Department of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University
