Mapping Decadence: October 2020 Update

The Master Map of Mapping Decadence now features additional publishers and their locations. Click on the legend to find out which name is associated with each color. Click on any point on the map and the pop-ups will indicate the publisher’s name, their address, and whose books they published and when. As a reminder, the project focuses on four Decadent writers: Joris-Karl Huysmans, Jean Lorrain, Rachilde, and Marcel Schwob.

Mapping Decadence Update: New Content Added

Hello everyone,
I finally found some time to update Mapping Decadence and I am pleased to say that I have added the following content to my website:

  • An introduction to my analysis of Huysmans, Lorrain, Rachilde and Schwob‘s maps.
  • Story Maps for each author. The last slide includes a link to the larger map in case people want to see a bigger version of it.  But my Story Maps are interactive, that is to say, the pop-ups can still be displayed.
  • A short bibliography.

Again, this is my interpretation, my analysis, and I am sure many will disagree or see something different in the maps, which is great. This is what makes scholarship so rich. My goal originally was to have the maps and the data available for anyone interested in Decadence and France so I hope this proves useful.
