Professor Dan Terkla has been asked by Nick Millea, Maps Librarian at Oxford University’s Bodleian Library, to deliver the Michaelmas term lecture for The Oxford Seminars in Cartography (TOSCA) this November. Dan also has been an invited speaker in the Maps & Society Lectures series at the University of London’s Warburg Institute and in the Cambridge Seminars in the History of Cartography. His work over the past two decades has made him a leading authority on the Hereford Mappa Mundi, the 700 year-old world map at Hereford Cathedral in the west of England. Dan was made a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, London, in 1998.
Nick Millea writes this about the Oxford series: “It has always been TOSCA’s intention to blend the ‘big’ names in cartography with cutting edge research from newcomers in the field to present our audiences with stimulating subject matter.”
