What can art tell us about places, spaces, and the people that exist within them? How can we employ geographic frameworks to gain a better understanding of our past and present? Join us as we consider the five themes of geography (location, place, region, movement, and human-environment interaction) through the lens of artworks from the ancient Americas, and reflect upon the importance of primary sources to shaping our perceptions of cultural and physical landscapes.
