From the International Map Collectors' Society and the Texas Map Society:
13th Biennial Virginia Garrett Lectures on the History of Cartography
Have you ever wanted to learn about the southwestern United States with its rich Spanish and Mexican tradition, the development and history of Texas, and how it became such a unique place? Wouldn’t it be great if you could do so through something you love: maps? Now you can.
The Central Library of the University of Texas at Arlington has teamed up with the Texas Map Society and the International Map Collectors' Society to bring you a special series of lectures and programs to learn about Texas and the southwest. Registration, detailed agenda, cost, and hotel information for this special symposium are now live online!
The main events take place between October 5th and 8th. However, there is both a pre-conference visit and a substantial post-conference trip.
Most of the programs will take place in Arlington, with side trips to surrounding Dallas and Fort Worth.
The event is both virtual and physical. The physical events naturally cluster around the main presentations, but with exciting trips after both the Friday and Saturday groups of lectures.
An excellent 2.5 minute invitation video about the symposium has been produced on YouTube. Watch it to whet your appetite for attending! Click here to watch.
The registration link here also gives details of the Symposium’s selected hotels/preferential rates, and the various trips.
Please note that several of the associated trips have limited availability, so please do act promptly on these. It would also obviously be of great help to the organizers for you to register as soon as you are able.
