About the event
The Oxford Seminars in Cartography (TOSCA) focuses on Women and Maps in its first online conference. Mapping, and closely linked professions such as surveying, exploration, navigation, hydrography, and printing, have conventionally been associated with men: as makers, patrons, users, and interpreters. Sometimes those assumptions reflect reality, but sometimes they do not. This conference explores the place of women and the feminine in maps and mapping, with no chronological or geographical bounds, and a broad understanding of 'maps'.
- Maps by women
- Maps depicting women - real or not
- Maps depicting land and sea as gendered
- Maps for women
- Maps' paratexts and women
- Maps in the care of women
Everyone interested in maps is welcome to join us for this free conference. View the conference programme.
