Abstract

‘Practical/Political Mapping’ falls under the ‘Mappings’ rubric that comprises it and two other sessions in a proposed series that aims to advance studies in the history of cartography. Papers in the ‘Practical/Political Mapping’ session link functional representation to sociopolitical needs to show why and how select maps from the 10th-16th centuries conceptualize and configure space for civic and/or political reasons.
