Mary Pedley & Matthew Edney are joined by The History of Cartography Volume Four contributor on Ottoman mapping, Gottfried Hagen (University of Michigan), to explore the particularly special and unusual aspects of mapmaking in the long eighteenth century.

Gottfried Hagen is Associate Professor of Turkish Studies and teaches a broad range of courses on Turkish, Ottoman, and Islamicate cultural history, as well as Ottoman language. In his research, he asks how Ottoman culture constructed the globe and the universe, space, self, and others.

Mary Sponberg Pedley is the Adjunct Assistant Curator of Maps at the Clements Library and co-editor with Matthew Edney of The History of Cartography Volume Four: Cartography in the European Enlightenment. Her research has focused on French and English map makers and map production in the long eighteenth century.

Matthew H. Edney holds the Osher Chair in the History of Cartography at the University of Southern Maine and is the Director of the History of Cartography Project, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
