Workshop: Cartography and the use of sources

Workshop: Cartography and the use of sources.
When the historian’s work does not involve writing and is not limited to illustrations

The seminar aims to bring to light the potentiality of cartography in historical enquiry. In some cases, one cannot limit research to the mere transcription of documents or summarize them in a written text. In these circumstances, one must resort to an interdisciplinary approach. Spatial categories are useful for reconstructing the material and symbolic practices of a particular population in a given historical period. The seminar will be held in English and will take place at the MPIeR (seminar room Z02) from 4 to 6 pm. For registration please contact Dr. Benedetta Albani: .
