Professor of Geography Stephen Hanna has been chosen as an inaugural fellow of the American Association of Geographers (AAG).

The lifetime fellowship honors geographers who have made significant contributions to the discipline and can serve as a body of advisers for the AAG and mentors for early and mid-career faculty.

Hanna is noted for his work in critical cartography, drawing attention to the ways a map’s meaning changes through use. His research on tourism has changed the way slavery is interpreted for tourists who visit Virginia’s plantation museums.

The AAG also has appointed Hanna to a four-year term as cartography editor for its three journals, Annals, Professional Geographer, and GeoHumanities.
