History of Cartography Project

Continued development of the multi-volume reference work, The History of Cartography, leading to publication of Volume Four on the European Enlightenment, 1650-1800, and completion of research, editing, fact-checking, and procurement of illustrations for Volume Five on The Nineteenth Century.

We request an implementation grant for July 2019–June 2021 to advance the final volume of a major reference series, The History of Cartography, and to finalize its penultimate volume. Work planned includes research and extensive preparation of Vol. 5 (for press submission August 2021) and outreach to scholars and the public with Vol. 4’s publication in late 2019. This award-winning series is the only comprehensive and reliable resource to study the people, cultures, and societies that have produced and used maps from prehistory to the present. It provides intellectual access to the complex world of maps for scholars and the public. It promotes and sustains the humanistic interpretation of maps as evidentiary sources. Experienced editors, contributors, and staff thoroughly research and rigorously check its content. The Press is responsible for publishing and distributing the volumes, making them available to a broad audience in print, e-book, and eventually free online editions.

History of Cartography Project

Continued development of the multi-volume reference work "The History of Cartography" with particular attention to Volume Four on the "European Enlightenment, 1650-1800," and Volume Five on "The Nineteenth Century."

We request an implementation grant (July 2015-June 2017) under NEH’s Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program and Bridging Cultures initiative for work on The History of Cartography, a reference encyclopedia. We propose to complete editorial preparation of Vol. 4 in December 2016 and submit it to the University of Chicago Press, while continuing to advance Vol. 5. This award-winning series is the only comprehensive and reliable reference work to study the people, cultures, and societies that have produced and used maps from prehistory to the present. It provides intellectual access to the complex world of maps for scholars and the general public. It promotes and sustains the culturally sophisticated interpretation of maps as evidentiary source materials. Thoroughly researched by its editors and contributors, its content is rigorously checked by an experienced editorial team. The Press is publishing in print and e-book formats and is producing a free online edition.

History of Cartography Project

Continued development of the multi-volume reference work "The History of Cartography" with particular attention to Volume Four on the "European Enlightenment, 1650-1800," Volume Five on "The Nineteenth Century," and Volume Six on the "Twentieth Century."

The award-winning History of Cartography is the only comprehensive and reliable reference work that studies the people, cultures, and societies that have produced and consumed maps from prehistoric times to the present. It provides intellectual access to the complex world of maps for scholars, teachers, students, librarians, and the informed general public. It thus promotes and sustains the culturally sophisticated interpretation of maps as evidentiary source materials. Thoroughly researched by its editors and international contributors, its content is rigorously checked by an experienced editorial team. In addition to publishing in print, as befits a definitive source of information, the University of Chicago Press is producing an online edition to maximize access.

History of Cartography [HOC]

Continued development of the multi-volume reference work, the "History of Cartography," with especial attention to Volume 4, "Cartography in the European Enlightenment."

We seek funding to support the continued preparation of the award-winning series, The History of Cartography, under the direction of Matthew Edney. The history of cartography is a rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field that spans the humanities and social sciences; it is driven by an appreciation that maps are complex, culturally rich texts through which people organize and make sense of their world. This project accordingly studies the people who have produced and used maps in the context of their cultures and societies. This proposal primarily focuses on preparing manuscripts for Volume Four (European Enlightenment, 1650-1800), edited by Edney and Mary Pedley, and designing Volume Five (Nineteenth Century),edited by Roger Kain. Some costs will also be incurred for Volume Six (Twentieth Century),edited by Mark Monmonier. Quality control will be directed by Edney and accomplished by the Project staff in Madison and the publisher, the University of Chicago Press.

History of Cartography [HOC]

The continued preparation of the fourth volume of "The History of Cartography," entitled "Cartography in the European Enlightenment."

We seek funding to support the continued compilation of _The History of Cartography_ series, now directed by Matthew H. Edney. The history of cartography is a rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field that spans the humanities and social sciences; it is driven by an appreciation that maps are complex, culturally rich texts through which people organize and make sense of their world. This project accordingly studies the people who have produced and used maps in the context of their cultures and societies. This proposal primarily focuses on Volume Four, _Cartography in the European Enlightenment_, edited by Edney and Mary Pedley, which covers the period 1650-1800. In May 2004 the University of Chicago Press pre-approved publication of the volume following positive peer-reviews of a detailed prospectus. Under the proposed grant, the editors will continue soliciting and editing contributions. Quality control will be directed by Edney and accomplished by the Project staff at the UW-Madison.
