PENSA, Maria Laura. Notes for a conversation on the study of colonial cartographic records. Mem. am. [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.2, pp.110-124.  Epub 09-Dic-2020. ISSN 1851-3751.

This article constitutes a summary or annotated bibliography on the main contributions towards the study of maps and other cartographic documents from different social disciplines. Diverse ideas coming from anthropology, cultural, colonial, cartographic and visual studies are selected and put into a discussion that reflects on the nature of cartographic images and a possible analysis methodology. It is suggested that by virtue of their hybrid nature, a study that contemplates both textual and visual features will lead us to a better understanding of these documents and their possibilities as sources of information.

Palabras clave : colonial studies; visual studies; cartography; theory.
