The Commission on Art & Cartography of the International Cartographic
Association is organizing a workshop in Zurich in June 2012 on "cartography
and narratives." This workshop aims to bring together artists, scholars and
students from cartography, geography, the humanities and the arts
interested in exploring further the multiple relationships between maps and
narratives. We would like to invite participants interested in discussing
and debating any type of relationships between maps and narratives
- The theoretical underpinning of the relationships between maps,
narratives and places;
- The forms and functions of maps in/of fictions (e.g. in novels
- The practices of mapping vernacular knowledge and personal
- The political implications of narrative maps;
- The technological and practical aspects of narrative cartography
(e.g. the Geoweb).
The main outcome of this workshop will be the *production of a collective
movie dedicated to narrative cartography*. This movie will be made of the
different contributions of the participants of the workshop.
The deadline for submitting proposals is *January 15th, 2012.
