23rd International Conference on the History of Cartography
|Event Date/Time: Jul 12, 2009|
We call for papers and posters that propose or demonstrate new concepts, patterns, conditions, techniques, relations and interpretations. We also welcome contributions on newly discovered, important maps or map types as well as examinations of regional themes of wide interest. Contributions on a topic from specialists in disciplines such as geodesy, tourism studies, linguistics, history of science, art history, etc., are very welcome.
The ICHC2009 focuses on the four main themes that are briefly outlined below. However, contributions on any other aspect of the history of cartography are very welcome.
- Cartography of the Arctic, North Atlantic and Scandinavian regions
- Cross-cultural cartographies
- Mapping mythical and imaginary places
- Maps and the written word
and any other aspect of the history of cartography.
