The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America before Independence

Saturday, November 3, 2018 at 10:00am to 11:30am

The Fry-Jefferson Map Society hosts this map lecture and book signing with author and professor S. Max Edelson, who studies the history of colonial British America and the Atlantic world. His latest book, The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America before Independence, examines the cartographic record of empire in British America in the generation before the American Revolution and features a dynamic digital archive of 257 maps and map collections. Edelson is co-director of the University of Virginia’s Early American Seminar at Monticello, an ongoing project that critiques research in progress on colonial America, the American Revolution, the early republic, and related fields. A book signing follows the lecture. For more information on this event or membership, contact or 804.692.3813.
