New York Map Society
Lars Grava on: "At the Edge of Empires - Maps of the Baltic States"
Lars, in a reprise of his Fall 2019 presentation to the Washington Map
Society will discuss how maps have more than two dimensions, as they
also illuminate political, societal, cultural, and economic features of the
geographies they depict. The Baltic States, located at the crossroads of
geographic interests, were often caught between two different powers,
religions, or other competing parties, and hence the importance of the
region. His collection, which now comprises over 400 maps, was begun
by his father, Professor Sigurds Grava. Although his father passed away
10 years ago, Lars' study of Baltic maps helps him continue his special
relationship and bond with his father.
