January 13, 2022 - USA (Online) The Boston, California, Chicago, New York, Philip Lee Phillips, Rocky Mountain, Texas, and Washington Map Societies are offering a virtual lecture via Zoom . Anyone interested in participating in the meeting must RSVP to John Docktor at washmap(at)gmail.com in order to receive the meeting ID and passcode. Meeting will start at 7:00 PM Eastern Time, 6:00 PM Central Time, 5:00 PM Mountain Time, and 4:00 PM Pacific Time. Benjamin B. Olshin (retired Professor of Philosophy, History and Philosophy of Science and Technology, and Design at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia) will discuss Indigenous Mapping: Cultural and Psychological Sources. In cartography and other fields, “scientific thinking” is defined as an analytic and systematic way of observing and interacting with the world. “Analytic” in this context means examining evidence and constructing models of the world based on that evidence. By contrast, what characterizes non-scientific, indigenous cultures is — rather derisively — called “magical thinking”, a belief in structures beyond observable physical reality. This talk will examine how apparently non-scientific thinking (i.e., non-analytic thinking) can nonetheless create sophisticated maps and broader systems of knowledge, with parallels in other traditional systems, such as indigenous medicine. The talk will touch upon the underlying cultural and psychological frameworks that produce indigenous knowledge systems and note that such systems still exist deep within the human psyche everywhere — and may reflect how we truly perceive the world around us.

From before its earliest settlement to the vibrant metropolis that exists today, the island of Manhattan has always been a place of struggle, growth, and radical transformation. Humans, history, and natural events have shaped this tiny sliver of land for more than 400 years. In Manhattan, travel back in time to discover how a small rodent began an era of rapid change for the island. Learn about immigration, the slave trade, and the people who built New York City. See how a street plan projected the city’s future, and how epic fires and storms led to major feats of engineering above and below ground. Through dramatic illustrations, informative sidebars, and detailed maps inspired by historic archives, Manhattan explores the rich history that still draws people from all around the world to the island’s shores today. From The Battery downtown up to Inwood, every inch of the island has a story to tell. Jennifer is also the author-illustrator of books for children, including "Charles Darwin's Around-the-World Adventure," and "Grandma Gatewood Hikes the Appalachian Trail."

The talk explores the visual strategies that medieval mapmakers used to create the sense that a viewer safely ensconced in a church in England could see distant peoples throughout the world. It also examines the visual dynamics that seem to allow these supposedly-distant peoples to travel across the world, and appear within the “safe” spaces where the maps are housed.

May 19–21, 2022 - Leuven (Online) The Crossroads Research Centre will have an online workshop Mapping Practices and Transpacific Transfers of Geographic Knowledge, Sixteenth to Early Nineteenth Centuries. When the first galleons crossed the Pacific in the sixteenth century, new routes of exchange started to be formed, connecting Asia and the Americas. These networks also brought about new impulses in the history of map making. Galleons and other vessels surveyed the waters, lands, and coastlines along their routes, and the resulting knowledge was then adapted in ports on both sides of the Pacific Ocean. Thereupon, this new or revised knowledge circulated further and affected regions and mapmakers that were not directly connected to transpacific navigation. Mapmakers adapted information on navigation and coast lines, and added, removed, or revised islands, harbours, or other specifications. Exchanges also had a profound effect on port cities themselves, an effect that we can observe, for example, in city maps, which mark trading posts, ships, or quarters for foreigners. Individual maps could be captured from ships or be passed on as gifts along these routes, and these artifacts themselves can tell a story of exchange across the Pacific World and beyond. The workshop will address these stories of exchanges and mapping practices across and along extended Transpacific networks, as they can be observed on maps and with the help of maps in any language.
