This visual presentation explores the mapping of the Chinese empire as a collaborative effort in the history of science. Matteo Ricci’s World Map (c. 1600) led Chinese scholars to see and represent their place in the world in new ways. Laura Hostetler demonstrates that just as European maps of China relied on Chinese knowledge, Chinese maps of the empire drew on methods introduced from the West. Here’s the flyer for more information.
