Mapping the Past

This is a peer-reviewed book series exploring and revitalizing the relationship between the history of mapping and the mapping of history. The series editors stimulate to explore the potential of maps for the study of the past, and accordingly the series aims at cross-fertilizing the history of cartography with disciplines such as history, landscape studies, geography, art history, digital humanities, urban planning and heritage studies. Volumes take the study of maps and mapmaking practices as a crucial starting point for understanding the evolutions, representations and imaginations of past societies, landscapes and territories. They may equally present the results of broader collaborative research projects or detailed case studies, insofar they have wider methodological and theoretical relevance. The series has no temporal or geographical limitations and both monographs and coherently presented edited volumes are welcomed.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals or full manuscripts to the series editors Bram Vannieuwenhuyze and Iason Jongepier, or to the publisher at Brill, Alessandra Giliberto.
