Event Presented by

International expert in the history of cartography Professor Jerry Brotton and Bodley’s Librarian Richard Ovenden give a masterclass on the Selden Map of China.

The recently rediscovered Selden Map of China throws new light on the history of cartography and Ming China’s involvement in a hitherto unknown period of mapmaking. Brotton explores the remarkable story of the map, its rediscovery and what it tells us about China’s place in the world then and now.

Brotton is professor of Renaissance studies at Queen Mary University of London and author of numerous books on maps, including A History of the World in Twelve Maps. He is co-curator of the forthcoming Bodleian exhibition Talking Maps, which opens on 5 July. 

Presented by Bodleian Libraries.
