This workshop introduces participants to the stories behind early modern cartography and examines how cartography enters into interdisciplinary studies today. Through maps, atlases, and other cartographic material from the Newberry’s rich collections, the workshop will explore how the production, dissemination, and use of maps reflected the interests of, challenges to, and developments in all aspects of early modern culture.
