CRS is pleased to announce a professional development institute for higher education faculty, led by CRS Director Lia Markey and James Akerman, Director of the Herman Dunlop Smith Center for the History of Cartography at the Newberry.

Co-organized by the Newberry Library’s Smith Center for the History of Cartography and its Center for Renaissance Studies, and supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, this interdisciplinary institute is designed for non-specialists who have either worked with early modern maps in limited contexts, or who find themselves drawn to the subject for the first time. They will engage with the most recent scholarship, guided by faculty from multiple disciplines. The institute will be grounded in the Newberry’s remarkable collection of early modern cartographic resources and related materials, gaining insights into the complex contributions that the prolific archive of mapping made to transformations in the early modern world.
