S. Max Edelson studies the history of colonial British America and the Atlantic world. His research seeks to describe the material as well as the cultural dimensions of new world colonization. His book, The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America before Independence (Harvard University Press, 2017), studies the cartographic record of empire in British America in the generation before the American Revolution. The book features a dynamic digital archive of 257 maps and map collections. Edelson is co-director of the UVA Early American Seminar at Monticello, an ongoing research seminar devoted critiquing research in progress on colonial America, the American Revolution, the early republic and related fields.
