Exhibit: “Latitude: Persuasive Cartography,” Cornell University
October 3, 2019 - February 21, 2020
“Latitude: Persuasive Cartography” in Cornell University’s Kroch Library features highlights from the PJ Mode Collection of Persuasive Cartography—maps intended primarily to influence opinions and beliefs, rather than to communicate geographical information. These “persuasive” maps are focused on shaping decisions and desired outcomes. They employ a variety of tools and strategies—unusual projections and coloring, selective inclusion, imaginative illustration, allegory, satire, and even intentional deception—to advance a particular cause or point of view.
