LIT 304  Literature and Maps

This class will explore the “language” of maps and the “space” of imaginative literature. Students will study maps from the medieval to modern periods and ask how maps and literature inform each other, what kinds of symbolic languages are used, and the way that imaginative maps can be found as part of literary texts. In addition, participants will experiment with projects based on geospatial information systems (GIS) to explore how the spatial analysis of maps might be a tool for a different kind of understanding of literary texts and contexts. MU Core category: Community & Global Engagement. 4 crs.
