12th International Conference on the History of Cartography

12e Congrès international d'histoire de la cartographie

September 7-11, 1987 — Paris


Held at the Bibliothèque Nationale and the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, with main coordinators Monique Pelletier, Philippe Pinchemel, and Mirielle Pastoureau. Attendance was more than 200, from 24 countries. Conference languages were French and English, and simultaneous translation was provided for about half the sessions.

The thematic sections were "Medieval World Maps," "Cartographic Methods in the Age of Great Discoveries," "State and Cartography," with sub-sections: "Cartography, War and Peace," "Cartography, Structures of the State, National Identity," "Frontiers and Creation of Territory," "Cadastral Mapping and Social History," then "Cartography and the History of Science," "Urban Historical Cartography," and "Island Cartography." photo report

Four exhibitions were held,

  1. "Espace francais. Vision et aménagement, XVIe-XIXe siècle," at the Archives Nationales (catalog (192pp));
  2. "La mesure du ciel," at the Paris Observatory (catalog (67pp));
  3. "Océans des hommes," at the Musee de la Marine (catalog (94pp));
  4. and one on 17th to 19th century plans of fortifications and towns, at the Hotel des Invalides.
There were 83 papers, full texts of most of which were distributed. This was the last ICHC where full texts of all, or most, papers were provided at the outset. There were several simultaneous sections, and even a triple one, so that no one person could hear all lectures, and this was a prime consideration in the establishment of a poster session beginning with the 13th ICHC. Fifteen of the papers were published as Géographie du Monde au Moyen Age et à la Renaissance, ed. Monique Pelletier. (Comité des Travaux Historiques et Scientifiques, Mémoires de la section de géographie, 15) (Paris, 1989). The papers published were those of Aujac, Barber, Cerezo Martínez, Gambin, Haslam, Hollander, Lecoq, Lindemann, Ozanne, Prontera, Randles, Szykula, Turner, Washburn, Wolf.
