Quo Vadis: Digital Mapping and Medieval Studies Today | The Standing Committee on Medieval Studies

Date: Thursday, October 6, 2022, 12:00pm to 2:30pm

Location: Zoom presentation

Whether scholars are annotating restored images of medieval maps or plotting data on modern cartographic platforms, the challenges they face in representing medieval spatial data remain largely unanswered. In this virtual symposium, participants will discuss what has already been accomplished with online medieval maps and mapping projects, and identify the larger questions concerning this genre of digital scholarship. Part I (Digital Mapping and Medieval Studies: Approaches), moderated by cartographic historian John Wyatt Greenlee, features presentations by Carrie Beneš (New College Florida), Helen Davies (University of Colorado-Colorado Springs), and Martin Foys (University of Wisconsin). Part II (Digital Mapping and Medieval Studies: Perspectives), moderated by Keith Lilley (Queens University Belfast), features presentations by Catherine Clarke (Institute for Historical Research), Jesse Torgerson (Wesleyan University), and David Joseph Wrisley (NYU Abu Dhabi).  Sponsored by the Committee on Medieval Studies and Digital Medievalist.
