Learn About East Asian Map-Making at the Wang Center March 24

Maps east asia 1

Maps are the manifestation of an intellectual construct of physical and metaphysical environments. They are rich cultural objects presenting and transmitting information about time and place of production.

This lecture — presented by Richard A. Pegg, director and curator of Asian art for the MacLean Collection — will provide some of the particular practices and relationships between text and image in East Asian map-making that are unique in world cartography. It will present, through comparison, certain similarities and distinctive differences in the representations of space, both real and imagined, in early modern cartographic traditions of China, Korea and Japan.

The lecture will be on Monday, March 24, at 1 pm in the Wang Center, Lecture Hall 1. Admission is free, but please click here to reserve a space.
