Multiple Middles: Maps from Early Modern Times

February 8 @ 9:00 am - May 14 @ 5:00 pm

Free

What should be in the middle of a world map? Mapmakers have grappled with this question for centuries. The exhibition Multiple Middles: Maps from Early Modern Times explores various approaches to that question with maps from the Early Modern Period.

Extending from the 16th to the 18th century, the maps, atlases and travel accounts on display push geographical and conceptual centers to the side and emphasize alternate middle points. As a result, previously unfamiliar histories and visual elements come to the fore, revealing the lesser-known stories of this historically significant cartographic period.

The exhibition is on view February 8 – May 14 in the Special Collections Gallery in Morris Library on the University of Delaware’s Newark campus. The Special Collections Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The exhibition is also available online.

Admission is free. You will need a photo ID to enter the building. Please observe the University’s current COVID-19 health and safety protocols when visiting.
