Remediated Maps. Transmedial Approaches to Cartographic Imagination–
(online), Rome, Italy
In the last decades, the reassertion of space as the gravitational centre of cultural enquiry and the consequent recognition of the constructed nature of spatial imaginaries, has contributed to the intensification of a real cartographic turn in the human and social sciences. In this context, the map emerges as a complex semantic structure that fruitfully travels across different media and visual grammars, translated from one cultural form to another. An attitude to hybridization with other media which today shows all its importance in the light of the new image formats emerging from the use of digital and interactive technologies. Following this line of enquiry, the workshop aims at extending the research horizons developed in the last years around the cartographic image, to deepen the methodologies of the so called cartographic turn and revise its categories of analysis in a transmedial perspective.
