New Publication from Laura Hostetler, GLAS Affiliated Faculty

Congratulations to affliated faculty member Laura Hostetler for the publication of her edited volume entitled, Reimagining the Globe and Cultural Exchange: The East Asian Legacies of Matteo Ricci's World Map that is part of the series in the History of Christianity in East Asia, published by Brill.

Description: How did Asia come to be represented on European World maps? When and how did Asian Countries adopt a continental system for understanding the world? How did countries with disparate mapping traditions come to share a basic understanding and vision of the globe?

This series of essays organized into sections on Jesuit Circuits of Communication and Publication; Jesuit World Maps in Chinese; Reverberations of Matteo Ricci's Maps in East Asia; and Reflections on the Curation of Cartographic Knowledge, go a long way toward answering these questions about the shaping of our modern understandings of the world.

Many congratulations, Laura on this major accomplishment!
