Brussels Map Circle event


Brussels, Belgium
Organisation: The Brussels Map Circle
The 2018 Brussels Map Circle Map Afternoon (MAPAF) will take place on Saturday 24 March 2018.
The Brussels Map Circle kindly invites its members and non-members to bring
  • an antique map
  • a contemporary map
  • an atlas
  • a globe
  • a cartographic instrument
  • an interesting book on cartography
and present it at the Map Afternoon.

We noticed over the last years that it is easier to follow the comments related to a specific item if they are supported by a short projection (using a slideshow or, e.g., a Microsoft PowerPoint® presentation) while the item is being properly displayed on a large table; this (optional) presentation should comprise a maximum of two slides per item in order to allow all participants to present their items. The details of your item and your presentation, if any, should reach Henri Godts (e-mail : henri.godts@godts.com ) or Jean-Christophe Staelens (e-mail: jcs@staelens.biz ) by 1 March 2018.

You are expected at 12.00 for a convivial drink and sandwich lunch
The Royal Library closes at 17.00 sharp.

Lisbon, Portugal
Organisation: The Interuniversity Centre for the History of Science and Technology (CIUHCT)
The main objective of the meeting is to bring together as many of the researchers interested in the history of portolan charts as possible. The proposed themes of the workshop are:
  • The origin problem: when, where, how and why were the earliest portolan charts constructed?
  • How did the portolan charts evolve over time?
  • How were the medieval portolan charts used in navigation?
  • The mutual influence between the medieval portolan charts and traditional maps of European and non-European origin.
  • The role of multidisciplinary approaches to the research on portolan charts: cartometric methods of analysis, numerical modelling, multispectral analysis, analysis of inks, carbon dating, etc.
  • Any other subject related to the study of the medieval portolan charts.
Organizing committee:
  • Joaquim Alves Gaspar (Medea-Chart/CIUHCT)
  • Tony Campbell (formerly British Library)
  • Ana M. Nunes (Medea-Chart/CIUHCT)
