Unlocking Historical Maps of Southeast Asia: Publics
How have historical maps been made more accessible to interested publics? This session allows us to hear from scholars and curators who have been involved in the development of public exhibitions and platforms used for sharing or accessing digitised historical maps. Learn about their aims and objectives, the audiences they hope to engage and the challenges they have faced in sharing collections with interested publics.
