The American Philosophical Society (APS) invites to academics from all domains to present proposals of presentations for an international and interdisciplinar conference that will focus on the power of maps and the politics of border establishment.
The event has the title The Power of Maps and the Politics of Borders and it will take place in Philadelphia, October, 10th to 12th.
The deadline to present proposals is the next March, 15th (see the announcement here and download the CFP here). The chosen people will be announced in May and they will receive help to attend to the conference.
The conference will coincide with the exhibition Mapping a Nation: Shaping the Early American Republic, that will focus on North-American cartography between 18th century and 1816 and its impact in the first construction of United States.
