CFP: ‘Digital mappings and historical geographies’
International Conference of Historical Geographers 2015, London, 5-10 July 2015
Convenors: Keith Lilley (Queen’s University Belfast) and Catherine Porter (Lancaster University)
This session seeks to explore current developments in the use of digital mapping in historical geography. Papers that explore techniques and methods to offer conceptual and critical reflections on digital cartography are particularly welcomed, addressing such questions as:
- How does digital mapping in historical geography help us to reimagine the past?
- How is historical cartography being transformed through digital mapping?
- How can historical geographers use digital maps to explore ‘hidden’ histories and geographies?
- How useful are current ideas on ‘mutable mappings’ in conceptualising digital cartography?
Individual papers may focus on particular maps, or collections of maps, of all types and scales, and the uses of digital techniques to analyse historic maps and plans to examine questions of past cartographic production and circulation. Alternatively, papers may explore digital mapping methods as approaches used to visualise and understand past geographies of people and places, for example in areas such as landscape and planning histories and in urban and rural settlement morphologies. The aim of the session is to encourage the sharing of experiences and practices of historical geographers engaged with digital mappings, exchanging ideas on methods and techniques, as well as to provide a forum for developing further critical reflection on our uses of digital mapping in historical geography and cartography.
For more information and to submit a paper proposal (200 words by September 5th), please contact Keith Lilley at k.lilley at qub.ac.uk<mailto:k.lilley at qub.ac.uk>
