Space is a category which is mapped, molded, and given meaning by social processes, political agendas, cosmological beliefs, and epistemological assumptions. Projects of mapping are manifestations of power and so can also become the site of resistance, negotiation, and contestation. Acts of defiance, negotiation, and incorporation effectively re-map the topography of human relations and recast the terms of inclusion and belonging. This EIHS workshop brings together graduate students working across time periods and geographic regions to discuss how space is historically and culturally framed, exploring what types of historical narratives are engendered or retrieved by examining cartographic sources and attempting to access geographic imaginaries of the past.

Panelists:
• Noah Cashian (PhD Student, Ancient History, University of Michigan)
• Ismael Pardo (PhD Student, History, University of Michigan)
• Lediona Shahollari (PhD Candidate, History, University of Michigan)
• Zoe Waldman (PhD Candidate, History, University of Michigan)
• Kenneth Mills, moderator (J. Frederick Hoffman Professor of History, University of Michigan)
