Welcome to the 2022 conference on Mapping the Pacific hosted by the State Library of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Sydney we have decided to postpone the conference until early 2022. We will update website as soon as a date and program has been confirmed.
Mapping the Pacific will examine the traditional wayfinding knowledge of the Pacific community, European exploration and the mapping of the Pacific from the early modern era through to the 19th century.
The conference is being hosted by the State Library of New South Wales in collaboration with the Australian and New Zealand Map Society, the International Map Collectors' Society and the Society for the History of Discoveries.
