Produire la carte : représentations transfrontalières et interculturelles de l’Antiquité à nos jours

20, 21 and 22 May 2019 in Mulhouse

The conference is part of the research project "Cartographie historique pour un atlas transfrontalier" (CHAT, Historical cartography for a transboundary atlas).

The conference aims to reflect on and debate the cartography of transboundary and intercultural phenomena. Through an international lens, and drawing from multiple disciplines, it ought to contribute to the conceptualisation of maps independent of political borders by inviting us to think about them across three axes:

  • Time (How compatible have intercultural phenomena and cartographic enterprises been throughout history?)
  • Space (what are the possible approaches when mapping intercultural or cross-border phenomena depending on the area of study, of creation and of diffusion of maps?)
  • Method (how/why can making maps show such phenomena?).
