The way that we represent space reflects the use we make of it – from the rhumb lines and drawings of ships that fill the seas in premodern maps to the details (topography, population and building density) included in modern military maps. Modern methods of collecting, storing and analyzing data, both geographic and demographic, have allowed for the creation of much more sophisticated models of the natural and built environment. And our capacity to image the environment encourages us to imagine how we might manipulate it, transforming land and water to reflect the world in which we want to live. This series of lectures looks at how mapmakers and statisticians have made sense of both the land and the communities that occupy it in the MENA region.
