The Garrett Lectures will explore the cartographic history of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. In particular, the ways in which maps and other related imagery have been used to depict the environment, geography, peoples, habitats, and political realms of the region. This year's lectures will be held in conjunction with the joint meeting of the Texas Map Society and the Philip Lee Phillip Society, an organization that supports the Library of Congress's Geography and Map Division. The joint map society meeting will take place following the lectures on October 5, 2002.
