Mapping in the Enlightenment
Mary Pedley, Assistant Curator of Maps at the Clements Library, will explore how maps aided the search for answers to big scientific questions, how innovative mapping practices changed the look of maps, and how the general public participated in the creation and consumption of maps during the European Enlightenment (ca 1650-1800). Mary is co-editor with Matthew Edney of The History of Cartography, Volume 4: Cartography in the European Enlightenment (University of Chicago Press, 2019).
