Radical Cartography in the Institute for Arts and Humanities

Kumeyaay map

A map of the Kumeyaay Nation, from Esenada to Escondido, will form the foundation for a radical cartography project, intended to heighten awareness of how colonial world-making occurs through time, with a special focus on scientific and technological developments. Icons on the map will indicate physical locations for which historical analysis has been performed. The icons will represent different themes: migration, medicine, science, technology, economics, industry, war, religion, food, drugs, transportation, etc.
