Mapping and Metageography in the Portuguese Renaissance
Having worked on maps and being challenged to write a piece on the ways Portuguese geographers and cartographers organized the Asian space, I have become interested in the matter of metageography, i.e. the problem of choosing and defining units of geographical analysis when confronted with a "new world" - especially, when as was the case with Asia, new knowledge competed with very old ideas.
