Within the framework of the research work Coloured Maps (2018-2021) financed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), several institutions in Hamburg organize a conference to deal with the material substrate and the meaning of colours from different cultural approaches in cartography.
We will talk about maps and colours, methods and discourses, colourants and analytical approaches. The debate will focus on European and Asian cartography between the 15th and 19th centuries. Other cases of interest will also be welcome.
The conference will take place on November 5 and 6.
