Henricus Martellus’s World Map at Yale (c. 1491) : Multispectral Imaging, Sources, Influence


06 décembre 2018



Salle du Conseil ISP

Conférence de Chet Van Duzer (Stanford University), Henricus Martellus’s World Map at Yale (c. 1491) : Multispectral Imaging, Sources, Influence.

From the late Middle Ages to the Renaissance, the influence of Greek and Arabic cartographic knowledge and the great geographical discoveries prompted the multiplication of models to represent the world. Far from being "neutral", the old maps and mappaemundi unveil a critical and multifaceted way of appropriating the space, both known and unknown. The conference will hinge on a case study, Henricus Martellus' map, and the discoveries made possible by its multi-spectral analysis.

Dans le cadre du cycle de conférences 2018-19, Topographies : représentations et transformation de l’espace.
