Edited by Surekha Davies (Western Connecticut State University) and Asa
Simon Mittman (California State University, Chico). Editorial board:
Ricardo Padrón (University of Virginia), Ayesha Ramachandran (Yale
University) and Dan Terkla (Illinois Wesleyan University).

This innovative series seeks monographs and essay collections that
investigate how notions of space, geography, and mapping shaped medieval
and early modern cultures. While the history of cartography has
traditionally focused on internal developments in European mapping
conventions and technologies, pre-modern scribes, illuminators, and
printers of maps tended to work in multiple genres. Spatial thinking
informed and was informed by multiple epistemologies and perceptions of the
order of nature. *Maps, Spaces, Cultures* therefore integrates the study of
cartography and geography within cultural history. It puts genres that
reflected and constituted spatial thinking into dialogue with the cultures
that produced and consumed them, as well as with those they represented.

The editors welcome submissions from scholars of the histories of art,
material culture, colonialism, exploration, ethnography (including that of
peoples described as monsters), encounters, literature, philosophy,
religion, science and knowledge, as well as of the history of cartography
and related disciplines. They encourage interdisciplinary submissions that
cross traditional historical, geographical, or methodological boundaries,
that include works from outside Western Europe and outside the Christian
tradition, and that develop new analytical approaches to pre-modern spatial
thinking, cartography, and the geographical imagination.

Authors are cordially invited to write to either of the series editors,
Surekha Davies (surekha.davies at gmail.com) and Asa Simon Mittman (
asmittman at mail.csuchico.edu), or to the publisher at Brill, Arjan van Dijk (
dijk at brill.com), to discuss the submission of proposals and/or full
