About the Programme

The Digital Historical Maps of Southeast Asia Platform is the result of a collaboration between historians and geographers based at NUS and four partner libraries: the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library; Yale University; Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford; Leiden University Libraries; and the National Library of Singapore. The platform will improve public and scholarly understanding of a wide range of digitised historic maps by offering new pathways of sense-making.

About the Speaker:

Professor Jane M. Jacobs trained as a geographer and is currently a Professor in Urban Studies at Yale-NUS College.  She has published books and journal articles on the cultural politics of heritage, critical colonial and postcolonial spaces, and the relationship between architecture and society.

About the Exhibition

Showcasing rare historical maps, “Mapping the World: Perspectives from Asian Cartography” brings together different mapping traditions and worldviews, political and cultural spheres of influence, and the exchange of cartographic knowledge between civilisations across the world.
