*Special Issues: Cartography and Narrative***

* *

Building upon the extensive work on literary geography and cartographic
cinema, a range of scholars in the humanities have endorsed mapping as a
conceptual framework to improve our understating of narratives. Meanwhile,
geographers and cartographers have recognized the importance of mapping
personal stories and vernacular knowledge in order to better understand
their contribution to the production of places. Examples of this fusion
between maps and narratives range from GPS drawing to walking as a way of
addressing the performative nature of mapping and from the political
mapping of journeys and stories of illegal migrants crossing borders to
mapping of feelings and emotions.

In order to further explore these relationships between maps and
narratives, the commission on Art and Cartography of the International
Cartographic Association (ICA) organized and held a workshop
these themes in Zurich, Switzerland, in June 2012.

We are now seeking academic and artistic contributions to be published in
two special issues of two academic journals.

The first special issue will be published in *NANO – New American Notes
Online* (issue 6) and co-edited by Laurene Vaughan (laurenekv at gmail.com)
and Matthew Bissen (mbissen at gc.cuny.edu).  *NANO* is a peer-reviewed online
journal capable of publishing a full range of media and designed to
encourage new interpretations and new possibilities. We are particularly
interested in submissions that explore and articulate representations of
place via narrative structures, especially the different ways such places
and structures are recorded, communicated, and critiqued. We invite
submissions that address forms of these two broad questions:  how do
narratives traverse through a “somewhere”? And, equally important, how are
real and imagined places narrated? Acceptable formats, sizes and lengths
are listed below.

The second special issue will be published in *The Cartographic Journal* and
co-edited by Sébastien Caquard and William Cartwright. It will compile a
range of academic papers providing more of a cartographic perspective on
the relationships between maps and narratives.  Both of these issues will
be cross-referenced to give more visibility to the publications as well as
to support the interdisciplinary dimension of this project.
