Monday, March 24, 2014 Maps of East Asia in the Early Nineteenth Century

Maps are the manifestation of an intellectual construct of physical and metaphysical environments. They are rich cultural objects presenting and transmitting information about time and place of production. This lecture will provide some of the particular practices and relationships between text and image in East Asian map making that are unique in world cartography. It will present, through comparison, certain similarities and distinctive differences in the representations of space, both real and imagined, in early modern cartographic traditions of China, Korea and Japan.

Dr. Richard A. Pegg is currently Director and Curator of Asian Art for the MacLean Collection. His upcoming book is entitled Cartographic Traditions in East Asian Maps.
