Event Details

Please join WMS for our 39th Annual Dinner, this year held at Maggiano's Little Italy, Tysons II Galleria Mall, Tysons, VA.

Come enjoy an evening of fine food & drink, camaraderie and an enlightening presentation. 

6:00 pm - Social Hour (cash bar)

7:00 pm - Italian Feast

8:00 pm - Presentation by Dr. S. Max Edelson (University of Virginia)

About our Speaker — Dr. S. Max Edelson is an author of two award-winning books and an associate professor of history at the University of Virginia, where he teaches the History of Cartography, early America and the Atlantic world. Among other significant accomplishments he co-chairs the Early American seminars at Monticello, and was developer of MapScholar, a digital visualization platform purpose-built for map history research and display.

Presentation "The New Map of Empire: How Britain Imagined America Before Independence" This talk will highlight the key ideas and most compelling visualizations from Dr. Edelson's latest book, detailing Great Britain’s attempts to govern her American provinces in the generation before the Revolution. Much of that effort involved mapping. From the frigid maritime Northeast to tropical West Indies islands, England mapped her New World dominions - both land and water - surveying a line across Indian country and providing source material for masterful atlases published in London. From those maps we can see, as never before, how Britain’s bid for supremacy helped launch the quest for independence.

Directions Maggiano’s is located in Tysons II Galleria Mall - easy to reach from the Beltway. Take I-495 to Exit 46, Virginia Route 123 West, Chain Bridge Road. Turn north on International Drive, then use the mall entrance at Greensboro Drive. Maggiano's is well marked. Parking is free. Metro is less than a 3-block walk.

(Ticket price: $75.00 plus Eventbrite fee)

Payments ($75) may also be made via check to Peter J Porazzo, WMS Treasurer, 1924 Tysons Trace Drive, Vienna, VA 22182.  Checks should be made payable to the "Washington Map Society."

We hope you can make it!
