Conference, September 25-27.2014 CENS, University of Helsinki
Mapping Europe’s North and South is an under-researched part of image studies within humanities and social sciences. We invite scholars of these fields to present and detect previous and ongoing research tied to the mental mapping of the binary North and South within Europe. The cardinal directions of North and South have been perceived in various ways according to different spatial-temporal perspectives. The ideological production of space lies in the core of mapping practices defining Europe in the past and up to the present.
