Conference: “The Cartographic Imagination: Art, Literature, and Mapping in the United States, 1945–1980”

This two-day international conference  investigates spatial representations and practices in postwar US literature and art, and their intersection with mapping. Organizers will investigate the ways in which American space is constructed, imagined, reconfigured, displaced, and questioned in writing and in artistic form. The conference will examine the specificity of the literary and artistic appropriation of cartographic tropes, as well as the possible points of convergence and divergence of literature and art in relation to mapping and the material culture of mapping.
