A Gendered Cartographies Project

The links below lead to different sites exploring themes impacting on women's lives in global perspective. Each site features a Google Map illustrating the various locations and regions relating to the explored theme, with additional information to form a multilayered narrative to this multimedia project. (Check back in May 2014 for Spring 2014 updates.)

This project expands on other student digital projects completed under the guidance of Professor Janell Hobson in the Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies here at the University at Albany.
