Abstract

Studies in critical cartography have exploded over the past decade, thanks in large part to the provocative studies of the late JB Harley, and scholars working in the still-nascent discipline have made serious contributions to the larger interarts dialogue. Inspired by Harley to collaborate critically, the work of Patrizia Licini of the Centro Italiano peer gli Studi Storico-Geografici in Rome; of Dan Terkla of Illinois Wesleyan University’s English Department; and that of Dominic Harbour, Curator of Hereford Cathedral’s Mappa Mundi and Chained Library coalesces and points toward new destinations in the history of cartography.
