Welcome to the 2021 conference on Mapping the Pacific hosted by the State Library of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
Mapping the Pacific will examine the traditional wayfinding knowledge of the Pacific community, European exploration and the mapping of the Pacific from the early modern era through to the 19th century.
This conference will be a hybrid event - onsite and streamed online. The onsite program will commence with Welcome drinks and early registration on Tuesday, 24 August at the State Library of New South Wales. The program of speakers will be shared in mid-june. Registration will be opening soon with details on how to join onsite and online.
The conference is open to cartographers, geographers, historians, map collectors, curators and everyone with an interest in maps.
We are looking forward to meeting you all online and in person!
The conference is being hosted by the State Library of New South Wales in collaboration with the Australian and New Zealand Map Society, the International Map Collectors' Society and the Society for the History of Discoveries.
