Leuenberger Israel/Palestine Map Collection

Investigator: Christine Leuenberger

Art, Architecture, and Planning, 2015

This project will seek to digitize and make available locally maps produced by various Israeli, Palestinian and international cartographic institutions that represent the territory of Israel and the Palestinian Territories in often varied ways. They also reveal the varied ways the Separation barrier is cartographically represented in line with map-producers assumptions about the function of the barrier, as either increasing Israeli security or as negatively impacting Palestinian land-claims and human rights. (Funded by the Arts & Sciences Teaching Digitization program.)
