Big Continent

Later this month I start teaching my own class for the first time. It’ll be an undergraduate international affairs lecture course at USC. I’m looking for images to grab my students’ attention.

The image below shows how big the African continent is. The map’s creator titled it “The True Size of Africa: A small contribution in the fight against rampant Immappancy.”


I first saw this map in The Economist. Its original source seems to be Kai Krause. Read more here.
