The Map of Early Modern London has added a list of publications and presentations about, based on, or making use of the project. See the Presentations and Publications page.
The Map of Early Modern London's experimental layered version of the "Agas" map has been hidden from view while we are correcting errors in the site identifications and ward boundaries. If you wish to view the experimental map, please contact General Editor Janelle Jenstad for the URL.
The Map of Early Modern London has added a category for Neighbourhoods to the Index. Neighbourhoods do not lend themselves to being mapped on the “Agas” map platform underlying The Map of Early Modern London because they do not have clear boundaries. However, they were significant to the early modern imagination and are mentioned throughout the texts we cite, edit, and analyze in the project. More neighbourhoods will be added as they are mentioned in MoEML. Encyclopedia-style essays describing these neighbourhoods will be assigned to contributors. Anyone wishing to contribute, please contact Janelle Jenstad.
The Map of Early Modern London announces the publication of Paisley's Mann's essay on the early publication history of John Stow's A Survey of London.
Mann's essay was originally written for English 520, "Representations of London in Early Modern English Literature," at the University of Victoria. A companion list of all the editions of A Survey is forthcoming.
The Map of Early Modern London is pleased to announce the addition of a new category to the Index. The new category, "Livery Companies," list all of the twelve great livery companies of London and any of the lesser companies that are mentioned in the site. Items in the "Livery Companies" index link to a with a brief description of the company with links to the modern company's website.
This project allows literary and scholarly works (primary and secondary) to be associated with locations in London, providing the reader with a richer understanding of the works.
