Dear ISHmappers and friends,
Just to let you
know that the next course on the history of maps and mapping organised
by Catherine Delano Smith and Sarah Tyacke will run 20-24 June 2016 at
the University of London. The course is limited to 12 participants.
See the call for applications, now out at
A History of Maps and Mapping
Course Organisers: Dr Catherine Delano-Smith, Sarah Tyacke CB.
The aim in this course is to draw attention to some of the challenges
facing the student of map history given the longevity and ubiquity of
the mapping idea, from prehistory to the present, and the variety of
format, function and context of maps at any one time. Sessions are
designed to explore the fundamental principles of map history to provide
a framework in which the details of any map from any period can be
accommodated. Stress is laid on the relationship between word and image,
and the role of maps in books, as a counterbalance to the traditional
way of viewing maps in isolation. The key tenet remains, however, that
of the indivisibility of maps as image, artefact and messenger.
