The Cultural History of Cartography: A Symposium

This two-day interdisciplinary symposium on the cultural history of cartography intends to facilitate discussion among scholars of history, art history, literary criticism, area studies, and architecture and urban planning. To develop comparative modes of inquiry, each panel will address specific concerns across geographical spaces and temporal periods. Topics include the relations of mapmaking, map reception, and map use to perception, fantasy, temporality, indigeneity, travel, migration, the slave trade, colonialism, citizenship, costume books, and poetry and drama.
