The Michigan Historical Review invites paper proposals for a conference," Motives for Mapping: Michigan and the Great Lakes Region," June 10-12, 2004.
The conference will take place in Mount Pleasant, Michigan.
Papers selected from the conference will appear in a special issue and a book published by Michigan State University Press. Proposals concerning political, commercial, cultural, and scientific mapping in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are especially welcome. Possible topics include Native-American mapping; maritime and other forms of transportation mapping; agricultural, environmental, geological, and land-use mapping; mapping for immigration, tourism, and regional salesmanship; aerial surveying, publishing, and other forms of mapping as a business; suburban and real estate development and mapping; political and school districting, redlining, and other forms of political mapping; mapping in social and natural science research and for commercial planning. Authors should link purposes or reasons for mapping to the cartographic results. We wish to consider the entire Great Lakes region, not just Michigan. Papers will be circulated in advance of the conference, should be in publishable form, 7,000 to 10,000 words, and should make an original contribution to understanding of their subject. Contributors will receive a small honorarium from the Kish Fund of the Clements Library upon receipt of an article ready for final editing. We also expect to furnish travel support. Please send a 250-word abstract by November 1, 2002. For further information, contact David Macleod.
