Conference "Cartographies of Catastrophe", 23./24. Nov. in Bamberg, UrbanMetaMapping

The first annual conference of the UrbanMetaMapping research consortium (funded by the BMBF) will take place in Bamberg and on zoom on Nov 23th to 24th. Conference registration is open until Nov 12th 2021.

Existing historical sources of urban damage cartography for various cities generated during and after wars and conflicts have been identified and researched, such as those affected during the Second World War in Europe (Austria, Germany, Poland, United Kingdom). Building on this knowledge, this conference aims to problematise cartographies of catastrophes from the 19th century until the present time in the global context, from wide interdisciplinary perspectives.
