Cartography Specialty Group Selects Joel Radunzel for Master’s Thesis Grant

The most recent recipient of AAG’s Cartography Specialty Group (CSG) Master’s Thesis Grant was announced in July. Joel Radunzel of the Maxwell School at Syracuse University was awarded the grant for his thesis proposal entitled “Position Mapping: Cartography, Intelligence, and the Third Battle of Gaza, 1917.” Radunzel’s research includes an examination of historical World War I maps while building upon David Woodward’s cartographic framework in order to provide a deeper understanding of the history of cartography. Radunzel’s thesis work also aims to provide insight into current cartographic techniques through his analysis of the historical WWI maps. We are looking forward to Radunzel’s research results.

The CSG Master’s Thesis Research Grants are intended to promote scholarly research in cartography to students who are currently enrolled in Geography or a related degree program. Applications to the upcoming grant are due November 1, 2014. Visit the CSG site for more information about the CSG Master’s Thesis Research Grant.
