An International  Conference

16^th and 17^th July, 2020. 
The Knowledge Centre, The British Library, London.

This two-day interdisciplinary conference is hosted by the AHRC Funded
/Chronotopic Cartographies/ project (Lancaster University) in
partnership with The British Library and comes out of the primary
research of this project into the mapping of space and time for
fictional works, with no real-world correspondence. Chronotopic
Cartographies develops digital methods and tools that enable the mapping
of literary works by generating graphs as maps directly out of the coded

See: https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/chronotopic-cartographies/

The Call for Papers emerges from the project and the interdisciplinary
fields that it draws upon and connects – literature; narratology; corpus
linguistics; onomastics; digital and spatial  humanities; geography;
cartography; gaming.  We welcome papers from those working in or across
these fields but also from anyone with an interest in the problematics
of mapping, visualising and analysing space, time and text from any
disciplinary perspective. We seek to bring together and juxtapose
different approaches in order to advance knowledge.

Questions and Areas of Interest: 

What kind of digital models are most useful for the Humanities?  
How do insights from the Humanities reshape digital methods? 
How do we map unquantifiable space and place?  
What happens if we release mapping from GIS? 
How can we connect virtual, actual and imaginative pathways meaningfully? 
How do we productively connect visual and verbal meaning?  
How do we accommodate the multiple dimensions of literature within 
2D, 3D or 4D space? 
How do we ground time? Does everything have to happen somewhere? 
What can mapping a text uncover or reveal?

We invite submissions in the form of either 20 minute papers or 5
minute Poster sessions. Individuals giving a paper or poster session
may also wish to run informal workshops in shared knowledge sessions.

Abstract Deadline: EXTENDED TO 29^th February 2020. 
Notification of Acceptance: 20^th March 2020.
E-mail Abstracts to Dawn Stobbart: d.stobbart1@lancaster.ac.uk
