Despite recent headwinds the Australian & New Zealand Map Society in cooperation with the National Library of Australia and The Hakluyt Society, is holding a one-day symposium in Canberra with the theme "Mapping Pacific Places".

Please keep the date September 10 clear - a program of intrepid speakers has been drafted, and the booking system and more details will soon be released.

[Due to Covid restrictions now in place, the event has been limited to one day, and a maximum 100 attendees]


At this one-day seminar we will explore ideas of the Pacific from "Magellanica" to the present, and reassess the role of maps in understanding - and misunderstanding - its knowledge, peoples and cultures.
