Historical Geography and History of Cartography

Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center, Boston Public Library, Boston,
MA/USA & Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education,
University of Southern Maine, Portland, ME/USA



The Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center at the Boston Public Library
and the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education at the
University of Southern Maine invite historical geographers, historians of
cartography, and scholars working in related fields to apply for fellowships
in the 2020-2021 New England Regional Fellowship Consortium (NERFC). The
NERFC fellowship offers two dozen awards of $5000 to spend at least two
weeks at three Consortium member institutions. The Leventhal and Osher
collections, both NERFC member institutions, represent two of the most
significant collections of cartographic material in New England, while many
of the NERFC's other 28 member institutions also hold cartographic and
geographic objects in their collections. By developing a proposed NERFC
itinerary at the Leventhal and Osher collections plus one additional member
institution, scholars working at the intersection of geography and history
will have an opportunity for a unique research opportunity.


The NERFC is administered by the Massachusetts Historical Society; see
http://www.masshist.org/fellowships/nerfc/ for more information. The
deadline for applications is February 1, 2020.


About Osher: The Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic
Education (OML) at the University of Southern Maine is home to nearly half a
million items related to cartography and map history. Our collections range
from 1475 to the present day and include a combination of maps, atlases,
globes, rare books, manuscript material, and ephemera. Our collections focus
on objects and items related to the history of cartography, the Holy Land,
the European settlement and expansion of New England, Maine, the American
Revolution, Westward expansion, and wars of the 20th century. OML also has
extensive collections of 19th century schoolgirl maps, geographic board
games, ocean liner ephemera, travel guides and tourism literature, road
maps, WWI posters (US), and materials related to the history of textile
mills in New England.  We have recently been strengthening our collection of
maps detailing Native American land dispossession in the 19th and 20th
centuries.  More than 60,000 maps in our collection are fully digitized and
available online at oshermaps.org. Our circulating reference collection
numbers over 6000 volumes.


About Leventhal: With over 200,000 maps, 5,000 atlases, and various other
materials relating to historical geography, the Norman B. Leventhal Map
Center at the Boston Public Library is one of the nation's preeminent
collections for cartographic and geographic research. Collections of
distinction include Boston and New England; the American Revolution;
maritime charts and atlases; and urban maps and bird's eye views. The center
particularly welcomes research projects that link cartographic
representation together with urban and environmental history, landscape
studies, the history of science and technology, and the study of communities
and regions. An emerging collections strength comprises material relating to
the computer revolution in cartography, geospatial data, and critical
cartography. A digital collection of more than 10,000 ultra-high-resolution
maps, some of which have been georeferenced, are available online.
