Cartographic Narratives: Trajectories of Cultural Agents and Artifacts in the Atlantic Space
8 July 2022
Université Grenoble Alpes
In art history the use of maps has been marginal, especially with respect to other disciplines. However, their contributions are enormous as they make visible relationships that texts or numerical tables do not illustrate and provide evidence of cultural exchanges that defy the canonical accounts of art history. Indeed, the geospatial approach makes it possible to visualize the trajectories of cultural agents and artifacts in Atlantic space as well as to intersect them with parallel political, social and economic events.
With the understanding of maps as tools for work and study, this seminar seeks to discuss the contributions that the geospatial approach brings to the history of art. Therefore, based on current research and the work with MoDe(s) Database, we will reflect on how to interrogate and analyze the points of contact, transaction or disjunction of the (spatial) history of art.
