The Bard Graduate Center will be holding a symposium on Mapping New Media on Friday, March 25, 2011 from 1:00 to 5:00pm.
Maps are a wonderful metaphor for the new media world. But even more, digital mapping has altered the way that we perceive and represent space. This symposium will offer presentations and discussions about these new forms of cartographic methods in the digital humanities. We will look at old maps and new ones, learn about historical data and geo-spatial techniques, and study New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
The afternoon will be devoted to two presentations along with a roundtable and reception.
