In the final chapter, parts of which I have cited in previous sections of this A Spatial Anthropology 21 essay, Denis Wood argues the case for an anthropology of cartography, noting that ‘we still have little idea what the gazillion maps are used for’. Exploring the mythic, propositional and performative function of maps, he suggests that what the map in fact does seems less clear and more diffuse than ever. While the power of the map has us all performing the ‘great map ritual of the state’, Wood holds out for the possibility of undoing this hegemony and of ‘reclaiming the map as something truly human’.
