California Map Society
Northern California Spring Conference
BECAUSE OF THE CORONA VIRUS PANDEMIC, PART OF THE CONFERENCE WILL NOW BE HELD VIRTUALLY AND THE REMAINDER WILL BE POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING 2021
Saturday, 25 April 2020 Agenda (Revised)
10:00-10:10 am | Welcome – President Jon Jablonski and Vice President Ron Gibbs
10:10-11:00 am | Courtney Spikes, Los Angeles, CA. Mapping Paris After Haussmann. In 1860, Emperor Napoleon III unilaterally altered the map of Paris - doubling its size and quadrupling the population. City planner Baron Haussmann, deep into his 20-year renovation project, reconfigured the map of France’s capital into the ‘city of light’ we celebrate today. Courtney earned her degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and UCLA. She lectures at Loyola Marymount University and serves as a historical consultant for television and feature films. Presentation followed by Q&A.
11:00-11:45 am | Juliet Rothman, San Francisco and Fred DeJarlais, Capitola, CA. Calafia: Bringing a Professional Cartographic Journal to Life. Juliet and Fred, editor and publisher of the journal, will discuss the arduous, but rewarding path of transforming the Society’s newsletter into a publication that reflects the multifaceted interests of our members and attracts the attention of the wider cartographic world. Presentation followed by Q&A
11:45-12:15 pm | Business Meeting
