Culture & History Digital Journal is a scientific journal published by CSIC and edited by the Instituto de Historia at CCHS, aimed to contribute to the methodological debate among historians and other scholars specialized in the fields of Human and Social Sciences, at an international level.

Using an interdisciplinary and transversal approach, this journal poses a renovation of the studies on the past, relating them and dialoguing with the present, breaking the traditional forms of thinking based on chronology, diachronic analysis, and the classical facts and forms of thinking based exclusively on textual and documental analysis. By doing so, this journal aims to promote not only new subjects of History, but also new forms of addressing its knowledge.

Founded in 2012, it was born directly as an electronic journal publishing in PDF, HTML and XML-JATS. The final version of some selected articles may be published in advance, immediately upon acceptance and correction.

Culture & History Digital Journal is indexed in Web of Science: Journal Citation Reports / Social Sciences Edition (JCR), Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) y Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI); SCOPUS, CWTS Leiden Ranking (Journal indicators), ERIH Plus, REDIB, DOAJ and other national and international databases.

Maps and Cartographic Ideas in Motion: Circulation, Transfers and Networks

José María García Redondo / José María Moreno Martín (coords.)

From a global perspective, this special issue examines the construction of geographical knowledge from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries as a continuous process of circulation and transfer of ideas, people and images. The articles analyze maps as pieces of a knowledge “under construction”: the map “as a place” of exchanges and experimentation, as an object that travels — throughout time— between different people, nations and empires, or as an instrument that creates, transmits or questions geographical knowledge. By analyzing the dissemination of cartographic practices and surveying tools, the reproduction or imitation of visual models, the relationships between mapmakers and their audiences, as well as the political tensions and everyday practices on the territory, maps are displayed more as a image “in process” of the world than as a stable depiction of an immovable truth.
