Event Details

The conference "Canada Before Confederation: Early Exploration and Mapping" will take place at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax on November 13-14, 2017. It will foreground the CANADA 150 celebrations with a look at the early exploration and mapping of the territory that now forms the country from the voyage of John Cabot in 1497 to the Treaty of 1763. Subjects that will be addressed in the talks at the conference include the contributions of Indigenous mapping and geographical knowledge to European cartography and reports; the role of geographical myths in furthering exploration; techniques of exploration and mapping; the evolution of the cartography of specific regions over time; and how place and mapping influenced Canadian identity and culture.

An exhibition of selected early maps of Canada will accompany the conference.

The conference is being organized by Lauren Beck, lbeck@mta.ca, and Chet Van Duzer, chet.van.duzer@gmail.com.
