I’ve been involved with the Mapping Sovereignty Project since my junior year, when we were originally concerned with charting the course of a Mughal siege.  The project has been a fascinating journey and challenged my conceptions of what a research project could be. My involvement in the lab has fostered a greater sense of empathy for the people who came before us. The challenges of ordering such a chaotic world were immense and I believe the authors of the charters admirably grappled with these problems.
