In this public lecture, featured speaker Dr Barbara Piatti, Director of the Institute for Cartography and Geoinformation at the University of Zurich and co-founder of the Literary Atlas of Europe Project, will examine the intersections between art and cartography, with a particular emphasis on the geography of literature, but also the nature of urban space. She is one of the leading examples of new work in the digital humanities and geo-spatial analysis.
