Faculty Lecture with S. Max Edelson

"The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America Before Independence"

11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Fort Pitt Museum at Point State Park
601 Commonwealth Place, Pittsburgh, PA 15212
1 mile from Heinz Field

$10 per person

Join UVA’s Lifetime Learning to hear S. Max Edelson, professor of History at the University of Virginia, as he discusses the British efforts to map America before the American Revolution.

In the generation before the American Revolution, British surveyors drew thousands of new maps of American territories. With ink and paper, they mapped out a new empire, controlled from London, over which American colonists had little influence.

Illustrated by a dynamic digital presentation that features original maps of Florida, the New England coast, the Mississippi River, the Native American frontier, island colonies in the Caribbean, and Fort Pitt, Edelson will explain how Americans reacted to this grand scheme of control and rejected the bonds of empire.

Bio:

S. Max Edelson is professor of History at the University of Virginia, where he teaches the history of early America and developed digital humanities platforms. He co-directs the UVA Early American Seminar at Monticello, a research community for faculty and graduate students in Charlottesville. He is the author of “Plantation Enterprise in Colonial South Carolina” (Harvard University Press, 2006), which describes how planters and slaves adapted to the volatile environments of the Carolina low country. His latest book, “The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America before Independence” (Harvard University Press, 2017), was awarded the 2017 John Lyman Book Award in U.S. Maritime History and was a finalist for the 2018 George Washington Book Prize.
