Digital World Map (UT Austin)

Digital World Map Broadens Scope for Middle Ages Teaching and Research

UT News | October 1, 2015

Online users can now travel back in time to the medieval world by clicking through a collection of international research on the first digital platform of its kind from The University of Texas at Austin.


The Web portal known as “MappaMundi” — a Latin word meaning “world map” — presents the world of 500-1500 A.D. on a modern platform created by UT Libraries. It opens a gateway to the digital resources collected through the Global Middle Ages Project, founded in 2007 by Geraldine Heng, an associate professor of English and comparative literature at UT Austin; and Susan Noakes, a French and Italian professor at the University of Minnesota.
