On November 10, Associate Professor Karen Barzman presented a paper, “Cartography and the Bounded State – A Genealogy,” at the Syracuse University History Department Workshop.

Karen Barzman is Associate Professor of Art History at Binghamton University. Trained as an early modern Italianist, she has developed a set of critical concerns informed by semiotics and continental philosophy. Discipline Representative for Art History and Architecture at the Renaissance Society of America (RSA), she also serves on the editorial board of the Society’s journal, Renaissance Quarterly.

She is currently working on two books – The Limits of Identity:  Venice, Dalmatia, and the Representation of Difference, which looks at borderlands as thresholds of difference, and Cartography and the Paper Management of the Early Modern State, a genealogy of mapping in the context of the imperial archive.
