I’m organizing a pedagogy roundtable (tentatively titled “Mapping Back”) for the 2015 Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) conference, which is going to be held in Atlanta on April 16-19. If you use maps and/or mapping technologies in your classrooms dealing with any aspect of the nineteenth century, please consider sending a 200-250 word proposal my way. I’m especially eager to hear from instructors using maps and mapping technologies to challenge conventional disciplinary and cultural conceptions (including the notion that women had little to do with cartography and geography!), but I welcome proposals from anyone working with mapping with their students. Please send queries and/or proposals to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 25th. Thanks!
