Subjects: Cartography, geography
Series: The Kenneth Nebenzahl, Jr. Lectures in the History of Cartography


I acquire books for the Press in cartography and geography. The Press’s cartography list is historically focused, anchored by the landmark reference work The History of Cartography, as well as other titles such as Kären Wigen, Sugimoto Fumiko, and Cary Karacas’s Cartographic Japan, Karen Pinto’s Medieval Islamic Maps, and Jessica Maier’s Rome Measured and Imagined. I am seeking projects that look at maps in their cultural and historical contexts to deepen and/or challenge our understanding of history. In geography, I am interested in books on cultural and social geography, historical geography, urban geography, and political geography. Recent titles include Stuart Elden’s Shakespearean Territories (October 2018) and Steven Seegel’s Map Men: Transnational Lives and Deaths of Geographers in the Making of East Central Europe.


Before joining the Press in 2015, I was classical music editor at Hal Leonard. I hold degrees in German and violin performance from Oberlin College and Conservatory and in musicology from Tufts University.
