Art of Judgment

This event will take place on Zoom

 

 As part of the Measuring the Earth project the Art of Judgment research cluster is glad to announce its new discussion group, which will explore new ways to frame the history of geodesy and, in general, representations of the globe and the geosphere in an interdisciplinary perspective.   

In this meeting, we will discuss the following texts

  • Wilko Graf von Hardenberg, "Making a stable sea: the littorals of eighteenth century Europe and the origins of a spatial concept”, in preparation for an Isis focus section on littorals;
  • Marie-Noëlle Bourguet, “Landscape with Numbers. Natural History, Travel and Instruments in the Late Eighteenth and Early Nineteenth Centuries,” in Instruments, Travel and Science. Itineraries of Precision from the Seventeenth to the Twentieth Century, ed. Marie-Noëlle Bourguet, Christian Licoppe, and Heinz Otto Sibum (London and New York: Routledge, 2002), 96–125.
