How to Create a Map from a JSON String?

My ArcGIS Javascript application is run within a widget framework where widgets communicate using an event bus.  We have a widget which needs to perform certain tasks for a map viewer, but it cannot be contained in or shared code with the map viewer.  So the map viewer will use the widget framework's event bus to provide its map in JSON string format.

I need to create a Map instance based on this JSON string passed into my application.  How do I accomplish this?
