My plot, your plat, our inhabited landscape
Early modern land surveyors and the record of European physical space
With this project, I aim to contribute to the early modern understanding of landscape as an inhabited, edited, but also controversial space. The holdings of the Herzog-August-Bibliothek with texts by German and other European surveyors give me the opportunity to examine the self-representation of land surveyors and the discourses and imaginations of the country that they described, in an international comparative perspective.
