Conférence themes : “THEATRE OF THE WORLD  in Four Dimensions”

Abstract : The 26th International Conference on the History of Cartography is organized under the main heading ‘Theatre of the World’. Inspiration was derived from the title of the very first modern atlas, which was published in 1570 by the Antwerp mapmaker Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598).

Ortelius used the theatrum mundi metaphor which was a dominant image in Western thinking. The world of the stage, of roles, masks, parts to play has been one of the most enduring ways of speaking about life and the world we live in. This metaphor also inspired famous writers. “All the World’s a Stage” is the opening phrase of a monologue from Shakespeare’s As You Like It, performed at the Globe Theatre. The Dutch poet Joost van den Vondel put it as “De wereld is een schouwtoneel”, while Calderón de la Barca titled one of his plays El gran teatro del mundo.

The four theatrical dimensions Space, Time, Imagination and Spectacle cover more specific aspects of the history of cartography.
