2022

August 6, 2022 - Richmond Please join us from 10:30am - 11:30am at the Library of Virginia, 800 East Broad Street, for a presentation on a compelling artifact of Virginia’s urban planning history: The Dunn Plat: An Adaptation of Joseph Smith’s Plan for the City of Zion in 19th-Century Virginia. In 2015, the Library of Virginia acquired a plat of an unnamed location that staff members originally described as a “mystery town.” Research revealed, however, that the late-19th-century manuscript plan drafted by Petersburg civil engineer T. R. Dunn follows the precepts of Joseph Smith’s Plan for the City of Zion. Smith, who founded the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), issued the Zion plan in 1833 as a set of instructions for how the faithful were to lay out future LDS communities. Presented by Joseph W. Grubbs, who led the Library’s research into the Dunn plat, this talk will explore the extensive analysis that confirmed the plat’s adherence to Smith’s Zion plan, including land-use characteristics and the development pattern envisioned for the prospective settlement. For more information, please contact Elizabeth Klaczynski at elizabeth.klaczynski(at)lva.virginia.gov or 804.692.3536. This is a free event. Registration is suggested.



August 9, 2022 - Washington (Online) Please join us for the second session in a new series of virtual orientations for the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division, focusing on our collection of fire insurance maps from 3:00-4:00 pm (Eastern) on Zoom. Register for this session here! Reference librarians Amelia Raines and Julie Stoner will present an introduction to the fire insurance maps housed at the Library of Congress, with a special focus on the maps created by the Sanborn Fire Insurance Company. This orientation session will highlight the background of fire insurance mapping, the Sanborn map collections, as well as fire insurance maps made by other companies held in our division. We will cover how to search, download, and interpret Sanborn map sheets. Also covered will be which sheets are available online and the future of digitizing these important resources. After the presentation, staff look forward to answering additional questions from attendees. We hope to see you there! This event will be livestreamed.



August 21, 2022 - Cambridge, Massachusetts Kris Butler (award-winning homebrewer, exam-certified beer judge, past president of the Boston Map Society, and currently on the board of the Washington Map Society) will discuss The Drink Problem and the Maps Made to Solve It: A Gripping Tale and Delicious Beer Tasting from 2:00-4:00 pm in Cambridge Center for Adult Education, 42 Brattle Street. In the late 1800s, guzzling to excess exploded on the heels of the Industrial Revolution. In England, organized anti-drinking groups created startling maps intending to shock people into abstaining from alcohol. Did these lovely temperance tools inspire zealous anger—or did they just make people thirsty? The story of their brief existence will be told amidst a tangle of licensing laws, corrupt temperance organizers, exasperated women, and - of course - several delicious pints of beer. Some of which we will sample in class while admiring the maps. The cost of tuition includes all beverage materials and fees. Register online.

Humphrey will be giving a talk on Zoom on his new book at 17.00. The talk is organised by the Scottish Maps Forum and will be free, but please register.

Professor Chiesa is the author of the most widely cited article in Terrae Incognitae’s history, “Marckalada: The First Mention of America in the Mediterranean Area (c.1340),” and we are excited that he will be joining us virtually to present his work. His presentation is titled Hearsay on America (and Ethiopia) around 1340. In his talk Paolo Chiesa will present new findings emerging from the study of the (still unpublished) “Cronica universalis” by Galvaneus de la Flamma, a work written in northern Italy around 1340. Within the work there is a lengthy geographical section devoted to several exotic regions. In addition to pieces of information depending on traditional sources, Galvaneus also reports unpublished news from oral sources available to him. In particular, Galvaneus mentions a land called Marckalada, located west of Greenland, spoken of by sailors. This is the first mention of the American continent in the Mediterranean region.

November 24-25, 2022 - Erfurt The Centre for Transcultural Studies and the Gotha Perthes Collection, Erfurt University will have a conference Mapping Asia: Cartography and the Construction of Territoriality in Centre for Transcultural Studies, Gotha Research Campus. This conference will explore cartography and the construction and contestation of territoriality in Asia from the late eighteenth to the twentieth century. In particular we seek to answer the question of how ideas of territoriality were cartographically produced, circulated and interpreted within Asia and between Europe and Asia. The conference is part of the project „Cartographies of Africa and Asia (1800–1945). A Project for the Digitization of Maps of the Perthes Collection Gotha” (KarAfAs). KarAfAs is a co-authored endeavour of the Centre for Transcultural Studies at Gotha and the Perthes Collection of the Gotha Research Library, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. By digitising the maps of the Perthes collection in Gotha, we intend to inspire future projects which see questions of territoriality and spatiality in a fresh light, utilising the source material held at the Perthes Collection. Participants will be invited to a tour of the highlights of the collection’s cartographic material on Asia. We invite papers written on any geographical area in Asia which deal with the intersection of cartography and territoriality from the eighteenth to the twentieth century to frances.omorchoe(at)uni-erfurt.de by Sunday 17th April. Send inquiries to Claudia Berger <claudia.berger(at)uni-erfurt.de> or Frances O’Morchoe <frances.omorchoe(at)uni-erfurt.de>.
