Welcome to Mapping Decadence.

Under each page you will find different maps that I have created using the digital tool ArcGIS. The goal of these maps is to show how location played a role in shaping the collaborations between Decadent writers and their publishers at the end of the nineteenth century in Paris. The authors in question include Joris-Karl Huysmans, Jean Lorrain, Rachilde, and Marcel Schwob. Click on the images or the links provided under them and you will have access to the maps. Please note that each author is associated with a specific color, while the publishers are in red. When you click on a pin or a line, information is displayed in a pop-up box. You will thus learn who lived where and when, what books they published and with whom, where they were living or working at the time, and where their publishers were located.
