Online Lecture: ‘All the Stage’s a World: Vernacular Cartography and the Castle of Perseverance’ with Dr. John Wyatt Greenlee, 10 March 2021 at 5:00pm (EST)

The Medieval Studies program at The Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites you to an online lecture by Dr. John Wyatt Greenlee on 10 March 2021 at 5:00pm EST. Dr. Greenlee is a medieval cartographic historian. His research is primarily driven by questions of how people perceive and reproduce their spaces:  how movement through the world — both experiential and imagined — becomes codified in visual and written maps. His lecture “All the Stage’s a World” will discuss issues of cartography in relation to the 15th-century morality play The Castle of Perseverance.

This lecture is sponsored by the Medieval Studies program at CUNY. The Graduate Center at CUNY is a leader in public graduate education and committed to doctoral and master’s education for the public good. Innovative research, rigorous scholarship, and collaborative and interdisciplinary learning define graduate education at CUNY, where students are prepared with creative, problem-solving expertise to thrive in and beyond the academy.
