2018

August 16 2018 - Kew This Summer Lecture Series welcomes a range of leading academic speakers whose research explores the theme 'Mapping movement: people, place and power'. The lectures are underpinned by the rich collections held at The Nationals Archives. The series is generously sponsored by the Friends of The National Archives and supported by the Royal Historical Society. When a map was first opened by the conservation team at The National Archives, out fell endless fragments of paper and began an investigation back to 1725. Today, from 18:30 – 20:30, Sonja Schwoll (The National Archives) and Susan Littledale take you behind the scenes of how conservation scientists rescued a map that lay at the heart of a seventy-year dispute and reveal more about the figure central to the court case, a Mr Samuel Travers. Registration is required.



August 30, 2018 - Kew This Summer Lecture Series welcomes a range of leading academic speakers whose research explores the theme 'Mapping movement: people, place and power'. The lectures are underpinned by the rich collections held at The Nationals Archives. The series is generously sponsored by the Friends of The National Archives and supported by the Royal Historical Society. How did a prisoner of war make their escape through Occupied territory? In 1939, MI9, a newly-established intelligence branch of the War Office, was charged with organising the escape and evasion of British military personnel. Maps were identified as the basic need for any successful escaper and so began a huge map production programme, mostly printed on silk or rayon. Today, from 18:30 – 20:30, Dr Barbara Bond will draw on The National Archives’ collection of WWII escape and evasion maps previously held by the Ministry of Defence, revealing the methods used to get maps to prisoners, the human stories behind these maps and the significance of this collection on historical military mapping. Registration is required.



September 13-15, 2018 – Oxford The 7th International Symposium on the History of Cartography, co-hosted by the ICA Commissions on the History of Cartography and Topographic Mapping and the Bodleian Library, will be held at the Weston Library. The title of the symposium is Mapping Empires: Colonial Cartographies of Land and Sea. The organizers encourage contributions investigating the cartography of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas as influenced by cosmopolitan exploration and imperialistic activity during, but not limited to, the ‘long nineteenth century’ (mid-18th to mid-20th centuries). The rise of European hegemony coincided with a scientific turn that underpinned the evolution of topographic mapping and hydrographic charting, and led to the emergence of thematic mapping. These colonial cartographies brought forth a rich legacy of mapping that continues to influence the aesthetics and authority of mapmaking today. In addition to conference presentations, technical visits and social tours in Oxford are planned as well as a post-symposium excursion. Additional information from Dr. Imre Josef Demhardt (demhardt(at)uta.edu).



September 19, 2018 - Floriana, Malta The next Malta Map Society committee meeting will be at 6pm at the MHS headquarters at 41 Lion Street. Additional information from Rod Lyon <galleon(at)onvol.net>.



September 20-23, 2018 – Golden, Colorado The 2018 Society for the History of Discoveries meeting will be provided in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Map Society, and will be held at the Colorado School of Mines. The RMMS pre-conference, Golden Quest: Mapping the Stampedes, will take place on Thursday, before the traditional opening reception of the SHD conference that evening, followed by SHD’s program, Great Mountains of the American West, on Friday and Saturday. The Exhibition of the Colorado Gold Rush History, a world-famous collection of rocks as well as maps of the West will be exhibited in the Geology Museum. Following the conference, on Sunday September 23rd, will be a guided tour of original gold-rush towns in the mountains near Golden, a ride on the famous Georgetown Loop steam engine train, an expert tour of an underground gold mine, and then a tour of impressive dinosaur and geological wonders nearby.



September 20, 2018 – Washington The Washington Map Society meets at 5 PM in the Geography and Map Division, B level, Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Avenue. Charles (Chas) Langelan will speak about The Lost Original Survey Maps of Georgetown. Tiny colonial Georgetown was first laid out not by a surveyor, but by its town clerk in 1752. His many errors weren't solved for six years. Then between 1770 and 1825, Georgetown expanded ten times in size through nearly a dozen “additions.” These were private real-estate developments added to the town, mapped out by various people, skilled and unskilled. Some of those drawings made it into public records; others never did. At least half of Georgetown's original maps were lost for 150 years or more, and some were never found. They have long constituted one of the biggest gaps in our knowledge of DC. Thus while Washington City's famous maps are carefully preserved, much of Georgetown's remained a mystery. Retired land surveyor Chas Langelan spent much of 2017 digging deep into original-source archives, unearthing a considerable amount of information unseen for decades or centuries…including many (but not all) of The Lost Original Survey Maps of Georgetown. For additional information contact Bert Johnson at mandraki(at)verizon.net.



September 21-23, 2018 - San Francisco The San Francisco Map Fair will take place in "the Lodge" at the Regency Center, 1290 Sutter St. The lecture series portion of the Map Fair will be sponsored by the California Map Society.

October 25, 2018 – Washington The Washington Map Society meets at 5 PM in the Geography and Map Division, B level, Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Avenue. Dr. Evelyn Edson, Professor Emeritus, Virginia Piedmont Community College, will speak about Sailing the Aegean Sea: A Renaissance Journey in Maps. In the early 15th century, Cristoforo Buondelmonti left his home town of Florence to visit the island of Crete. His purpose was to collect Greek manuscripts for the collection of his patron, Niccolo Niccoli, but he became smitten with the atmosphere, the mythological past, and the historical present of the islands, and never returned home. After writing an extensive account of the island of Crete, he went on the create the first isolario, or atlas of islands, describing 79 Greek locales and including a detailed map of each one. His work (pre-Gutenberg) was hand copied many times and survives in some 70 copies. He was followed by a number of imitators, and the isolario became a popular genre for several centuries; it retains its fascination for modern viewers. Dr. Edson will discuss the origin of his book and Buondelmoni’s life exploring the Greek isles. She is the editor of the recently published Description of the Aegean and Other Islands, a recreation of Buondelmonti’s masterpiece. For additional information contact Bert Johnson at mandraki(at)verizon.net.

November 30, 2018 – New Haven The Connecticut Map Society will meet at 7 pm in Lyric Hall, 827 Whalley Avenue. We’re going to combine our second annual Show & Tell with a holiday party at an unusual venue. Lyric Hall, located in the Westville section of New Haven, began as a vaudeville and silent movie theater. In 2006, John Cavaliere purchased the dilapidated building and has restored it to its former gilded glory. Here’s how our Show & Tell works: 6 or 7 members of the Connecticut Map Society give talks of 10 minutes each about a map or set of maps they own or admire. Lyric Hall has an ornate little stage for our speakers. The rest of us will sit back, relax, and watch the show! Last year, each presentation led to lively interaction. We’ll serve appetizers and you can buy wine or beer at Lyric Hall’s cash bar. Please RSVP <ctmapsociety(at)gmail.com> if you’d like to attend. Let us know if you’d like to be a presenter—for that, first come, first served.

December 2-7, 2018 - Washington John Hessler (Specialist in Computational Geography & Geographic Information Science, Geography & Map Division, Library of Congress) will teach The Art & Science of Cartography, 200-1550 at the Library of Congress as part of the Rare Book School Seminar. The week long extremely intensive seminar is a deep dive into the origins of modern cartography and the early practice of scientific visualization as it emerged from the Middle Ages into the Renaissance. Students will use the amazing map collections of the Library of Congress’ Geography and Map Division to explore both the artistic and scientific methodology of early mapmakers and scientists, and discuss in detail the complex epistemological problems they faced as the mathematization of science provided more and more abstract models of the world within the natural philosophy of the period. You must register in advance for the course.



December 6, 2018 – Washington The Washington Map Society meets at 5 PM in the Geography and Map Division, B level, Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Avenue. Mr. Ralph Ehrenberg; Chief, Geography and Map Division, Library of Congress, retired, will talk about Flying by the Seat of Your Pants: Rand McNally, and Post Office Belt Maps – The U. S. Post Office Airmail Service Air Navigation, 1918 – 1926. The United States Post Office’s Airmail Service played a pivotal role in developing the aeronautical chart in the United States from its establishment in 1918 through 1926 when airmail service was contracted out to private carriers. As the first organization in America to fly long distance scheduled flights on a daily basis, the Airmail Service worked closely with other Federal agencies, state and municipal governments, private industry, and civic groups to establish a national airways system analogous to the nation’s railroad and highway systems. The lack of adequate flying maps remained a major problem, however. As airmail pilot Ken McGregor remembered, “I got from place to place [by] the seat of my pants [and] the ability to recognize every town, river, railroad, farm, and, yes, outhouse along the route.” While a few pilots like McGregor relied strictly upon visual navigation, the majority resorted to using some form of published map. In an illustrated lecture, Mr. Ehrenberg will trace the history of map use by the Airmail Service and its own efforts in developing a basic aeronautical chart.

February 14-15, 2019 - Stanford A conference on Mapping and the Global Imaginary, 1500-1900 will be held at the David Rumsey Map Center, 557 Escondido Mall. Maps have long been used to bring imaginary places to life, from Thomas More's Utopia to JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth. But the role of the imagination in mapping extends well beyond the depiction of fantasy realms. Some cartographers have conjured places that were only rumored to exist but that they hoped could one day be charted. Others have drawn on their creative faculties to map sites that were only hazily known. Not a few cartographers have intentionally imposed illusory elements on their maps, whether in jest or in earnest (to mislead enemies, to foil would be plagiarists, or to score political or philosophical points). In the broadest sense, all maps are works of the imagination: at the moment of creation, the mapmaker translates a mental image into a visual and textual medium that can be shared. The various contexts that shape this process, the forms chosen for sharing spatial visions, and the nature of the resulting maps’ relationship to perceived reality all form important aspects of the study of cartography. This conference, co-organized by the Global History and Culture Centre at the University of Warwick and the History Department of Stanford University—is designed to showcase research and facilitate conversation about the role of the imagination in the cartographic enterprise writ large.
