Title: Re-mapping the Arctic: contemporary approaches to practising cartography across diverse knowledge traditions / Oliver Cohen.
Author(s): Cohen, Oliver.
Date: 2015.
Publisher: [Cambridge] :
Abstract: Analyses historical and contemporary debates concerning interactions of knowledge traditions in Arctic, in context of theoretical and practical history of cartography. Argues that, throughout history, cartography, its meanings and power have been integral to connecting different "ways of knowing" and creating knowledge. Extent of relationship between cartography and production of knowledge is illustrated through diverse roles performed by cartography, e.g. as imperial government technology, but also as "commensurate practice".
Notes:
