TERRA DIGITA: DIGITAL APPROACHES TO MEDIEVAL MAPPING
November 4-5, 2017
Sponsored by Cornell University and University of Rochester
CALL FOR PAPERS AND WORKSHOPS
The changing landscape of digital mapping technology continues to open up new frontiers for exploring, manipulating, and presenting medieval maps. From using multi-spectral imaging to resurrect faded charts to building interactive tools to advance mappamundi literacy in the classroom, medievalists are more and more embracing digital tools and approaches to provide depth and access to their scholarship. To further this work, Cornell University is pleased to announce an unorthodox conference: a weekend of papers, workshops and collaboration. We hope to provoke inspiration and collaboration among medievalists working with digital mapping, and to offer a space for scholars to grow their skills. This conference will provide a multi-modular venue, combining traditional paper presentations with platform workshops and poster exhibits. It will also include dedicated spaces for active co-working, supported by Cornell University librarians and Cornell’s Digital CoLab.
Where to Send
Presentation abstracts of 200-300 words due by July 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also invite workshop proposals containing the proposer’s relevant experience and putative subject via email ASAP (and no later than July 15). Poster proposals for the Map Room Exhibition should consist of a 150 word description of the project and, if possible, a digital draft of the exhibit contribution submitted for consideration by July 15th.
There will be a small registration fee of $10 for students and $25 for faculty to help cover expenses.
