Mapping defines and redefines landscapes informing concerns, priorities, and values of the author. The guests are invited to address questions of authorship in mapping as an exercise of recognition to define “the other”. Consequently, this visual acknowledgement informs the construction of place and space. Mapping & Authorship is interested in exploring the implications of this tool on the Latin community in Latin America and the United States by comparing tools and techniques across time and place.
