Changing Worlds

Globes and Maps in Exhibitions




Registration required!

Besides maps and atlases, historical terrestrial and celestial globes depict the way in which time and space were constructed mathematically and represented in multiple dimensions. Because these cartographic repositories of knowledge are equally interesting as historical models of science and technology, the cultural sciences, and aesthetics, we would like to deal with the following questions, among others, in this event: How can maps and globes best be used to convey historical world views in the context of the development of scientific disciplines? How did they influence education and what role do they play in imparting knowledge today? What benefits does the 3D digitization of historical world models promise and what enables their virtual presentation? What contemporary visualization methods help represent the appearance and complexity of the world?
