This session will discuss projects dealing with the digital mapping of the real and imaginary spaces with which humanists and cultural geographers deal when calibrating the relationships between real spaces and their imaginary reproduction by cultural creators. The papers will explore a number of recent projects that present innovative takes on what digital humanists can contribute to mapping these spaces. It opens new avenues for a dialogue about how to work across disciplines to better understand how mapping can help us explain it. The papers in this session, then, help expand knowledge of digital mapping tools and suggest a number of pedagogical applications in which to employ them.
