CFP for RSA 2015: Early Modern Art and Cartography. Deadline June 2, 2014

Sunday, May 4, 2014 - 4:38pm
Erika Gaffney

How did the production and circulation of maps and cartographic texts in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries affect the visual arts, especially pictorial works (painted, printed, or woven)? These centuries saw the circulation of multiple mapping systems and cartographic texts in new and traditional formats through the printing trade as well as court and other elite patronage. European voyages generated new geographies (physical, cultural, economic, etc.) that were integrated into maps and works of visual art. How did cartographic culture and the visual arts overlap and inform each other?

Crusoe in Asia Conference

Sunday, May 4, 2014 - 12:50am
University of Tsukuba, Japan

Criticism of Defoe's Robinson Crusoe has tended to focus on the period of his residence on the island, or even more narrowly on his initial complete isolation. Earlier episodes such as Crusoe's own enslavement are usually erased, and comparatively little interest has been shown in the complex constitutional arrangements instituted on his return to the Caribbean. Yet if geographical space is compressed in the first volume, in the second, the action ranges globally: Crusoe not only goes back to his earlier domain but also roams across Asia.

This conference wishes to explore three aspects of this theme:
