Cartographic Anxieties: Loving and Fearing the Renaissance Map

PRESENTED ON FEB 03, 2017
IN BATON ROUGE @ VOL 3

"If you are not nervous by those beautiful maps you see, you should be."

In Cartographic Anxieties: Loving and Fearing the Renaissance Map at PechaKucha Night Baton Rogue Vol. 3Christine Barrett shares how Renaissance English and European maps bewildered people of the 16th and 17th centuries. Although beautiful and eye-catching, like any cutting-edge technology, many maps were considered unnerving, unsettling, upsetting, and even terrifying. Watch to find out why!

This was "Presentation of the Day" on April 2nd, 2017.
