BY CHRISTINE BARRETT
@ VOL 3 ON FEB 03, 2017

"If you are not nervous by those beautiful maps you see, you should be."

In Cartographic Anxieties: Loving and Fearing the Renaissance Map at PechaKucha Night Baton Rogue Vol. 3Christine Barrett shares how Renaissance English and European maps bewildered people of the 16th and 17th centuries. Although beautiful and eye-catching, like any cutting-edge technology, many maps were considered unnerving, unsettling, upsetting, and even terrifying. Watch to find out why!

Confessions and Revelations of a Cartographer

BY PAUL GISONDO
@ VOL 21 ON NOV 30, 2018

Maps are powerful and timeless tools for communicating a wide range of human and geographic phenomena. The making of maps involves the telling of lies, both little and big, inadvertent and at times intentional. In doing so, certain truths and notions are exquisitely revealed. 

Paul Gisondo's presentation explores the power and beauty of maps, illustrating how they are used to inform and humor us in our quest to understand and make sense of our world, and how we will never run out of things to map.
