Maps are the cornerstone to understanding the network over land and water that characterize trade and commerce crossing East Asia. We’ll explore maps as representing the mindset of their makers—the differences between Eastern and Western cartography traditions—and set off on a journey that covers pilgrimages as well as the pathways of contemporary politics. Along the way, we’ll look into spices and artifacts, food and religion to provide an experiential discovery designed to translate directly into classroom projects and lessons.

What to expect: Exploration of the Clark Library map collection; teacher resource kits; lodging and meals provided.
