False Locations: Nonexistent, Vanished, Misplaced, and Superseded Places

Travel narratives, maps, world histories, and other writings and visual media frequently include unreal places, locations that never existed, or sites that no longer existed in the Middle Ages. As distinct from utopias and mythical places, the places of interest were considered real, recoverable, or discoverable in some way. This session seeks papers that examine the nature of false locations and places that no longer existed.
