Every Monday, I post at least one map to the Paperless History twitter account, Facebook group, and Instagram. When I first started posting these maps back in February 2016, I just chose maps at random. I stopped posting the maps in May, 2016. With the relaunch of the blog in 2018 and its new focus on decolonizing world history, I’m going to try to use maps that highlight non-colonized views of world history. Here is an archive of the original Twitter links.
