Speaking as part of the RSGS Inspiring People series, in partnership with Tiso, in this lively illustrated talk, author and broadcaster Mike Parker looks at the power of cartography to shape our image of the world, especially in fomenting ideas of national identity. Maps are beautiful and informative, but they are always also politically loaded, as Mike will demonstrate in a tour that looks especially at Scotland and the UK, but takes in, amongst others, the US, Russia, Slovenia, the Vatican and the ghost nation of Pomerania.
