Description
The seminar series theme for 2017-18 is 'Sharing a 19th-century Object and/or Concept. Bernhard Struck from the School of History and Mary Orr of the School of Modern Languages will present on the object: Maps. Bernhard will discuss a concrete map, sharing his findings on cartography in the 19th century and his work on 'Mapping Germanies: Cartography, Territories and National Spaces, 1770s-1880s'. Mary will analyse a ‘map’ of Bathurst (1823) in Mrs Bowdich’s scientific travel narrative 'Excursions to Madeira and Porto Santo, 1825' (English Ed.; 1826 French ed.), and explore the question of locating female and non-colonial map-makers.
