Women and Maps in Early Modernity

Call for Papers -

Abstracts are invited for papers about "Women and Maps in Early Modernity," for a possible SSEMW Co-Sponsored Session at the American Historical Association's annual meeting in Washington DC in January 2014.

-       Explorers contributing data from which maps are made
-       map illustrators
-       printers/publishers/sellers of maps
-       navigators/users of maps
-       writers on the topic of cartography

Abstracts (400-500 words) for papers 20 minutes in length should be submitted by January 10, 2013, by email, to Allyson Poska ( and Erika Gaffney (
