Adventures in Academic Cartography
Mark Monmonier retired in late May from an academic career that began in 1969 (with all but four years at SU). In addition to authoring numerous journal articles and more than twenty books, he edited Cartography in the Twentieth Century, a million-word encyclopedia published in 2015 as Volume Six of the monumental History of Cartography. Drawing on salient trends as well as his own experiences, he will reflect on change in maps, mapping, and cartographic education since the early1960s.
