(wine reception from 6.30pm)

‘The map as biography: maps, memory and the Kent landscape’

J. B. Harley wrote his essay ‘The Map as Biography’ three decades ago. While one of his lesser known works, it remains a fresh and inspiring piece of writing. This lecture takes Harley’s essay as its starting point, to explore the speaker’s own engagement, as a teacher, researcher and resident, with the rich history of cartography and changing landscapes of East Kent, with a focus on Wye and its surroundings.

Peter Vujakovic is Professor of Geography at Canterbury Christ Church University. He is co-editor of the recently published Routledge Handbook of Mapping and Cartography, and an expert contributor to The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World. He is Associate Editor of the Cartographic Journal and a former editor-in-chief.

All welcome, booking not required and entry is free (voluntary retiring collection)

Organised jointly by the CCCU Centre for Kent History and Heritage and the Agricultural Museum, Brook
