MGEO-4400 Taller de Geografía

This subject has three closely related objectives: first, that students learn to make maps of publishable quality, second, that they gauge the importance of map making in the performance of socio–spacial analysis and, third, that they approach cartography in critical fashion. For said effect, the subject is divided into two types of session: the workshop where the hands-on activity of designing and making maps is carried out, for which Adobe Illustrator software is used, and the seminar which is centered on the analysis of cartographic material and the discussion of readings which allow understanding cartography of an historically and culturally structured way of conceiving and representing space.
