Websites used in spatial history/mapping day (click on Places)

Find a passage in the article on spatial history that helps describe what the map(s) or website(s) you’re looking at is/are doing.

Then consider also: “space” is not an inhuman, unchanging object. Answer as many of the following questions as you can with your map/website:

  • How does space change over time?
  • Who inhabits the space?
  • How do the boundaries of the space change?
  • How do perceptions of the space change?
  • Who has power in that space and who does not?
