Romantic Cartographies


Asko Nivala a visiting scholar at the NULab for Texts, Maps and Networks, will present his project, Romantic Cartographies: Lived and Imagined Space in English and German Romantic Texts, 1790-1840. His project analyzes the “spatiality of Romantic texts by reconstructing geographic maps they implied.” The goals of the project include building a database of place names from these texts which can be used for spatial visualization and continued research by future scholars. Attendees will learn about the project and Nivala’s research on the spatial networks of important places within Romantic texts.
