Re-reading the Cartographies of Dispossession

January 14, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EST

Funded by Mass Humanities
Cost: Free

The United States achieved its 19th-century policy of expansionism across the midwestern and western regions of the continent by aggressively enacting policies of dispossession and genocide at the state and federal level against Indigenous people. Maps were both the mechanisms for, and witnesses to, the betrayals of justice that made the violence of dispossession and extermination possible. Margaret Pearce, independent cartographer and Faculty Associate at the University of Maine, asks us to stand in witness, look closely and listen to these stories in support of Indigenous people on whose lands we are guests.
