"The Lands Beyond: Cartography in Fantasy Literature," with Victoria Johnson, a GIS (Geographic Information Science) analyst, cartographer and journalist.
The focus of this illustrated lecture is the maps in fantasy literature as compared to conventions of real-world cartography. The presenter will explore fantasy literature's fascination with cartography and expand to include fan creations, representation in film, and other ways that maps have crept into fantasy media.
This event is co-sponsored by the New York Map Society.
