Patricia says, "The attached maps were drawn by students asked to draw maps of the world, one that highlights globalization. The different perspectives of the world were intriguing to me, students from North America drew a "western" map, where North/South America appear on the left of the world, and Europe/Asia, etc. appear on the right side of the map. A Korean student drew an "Asian" map where the hemispheres are switched on the maps. One student from the USA drew North America in the middle of the world. A Turkish student simply drew what was familiar, leaving the world apart from Turkey and Iraq unoccupied. I think these maps are interesting representations of how perspectives of the world are different depending on from where a person comes."
