The following were published during the 2018-19 academic year by University of Northern
UNC Professor of History Steven Seegel, Ph.D., authored the book, Map Men, that was released earlier this year. Seegel follows the public and private lives
of five mapmakers who interacted with and influenced each other as they began defining
and redefining borders, nations and territories in East Central Europe. Map Men is an in-depth biography of these five men’s lives and the historical dramas that
unfolded as the map of East Central Europe was drawn and redrawn due to continued
wars and revolutions. Seegel investigates the causes and consequences of the world
wars, the rise of Nazism and Stalinism, and the reasons East Central Europe became
the fault line of these world-changing developments.
Map Men follows the lives of cartographers in 20th century Europe.
Since the book’s release, Seegel has given numerous talks at universities across North
America including the University of Toronto, Harvard and Stanford. Seegel is also
scheduled to speak at Boston Map Society and the Rocky Mountain Map Society this fall.
UNC Assistant Professor of Leadership Policy and Studies Michael Ian Cohen, Ed.D., has co-authored the book, The New Democratic Professional in Education. The book examines how the privatization of public education reshapes the professional
identities of teachers and school leaders. The authors present a vision for the new
democratic professional that is grounded in participatory communities of practice
as well as advocacy for input from school communities.
The book features experiences from both authors during their time as K-12 practitioners
and time spent as faculty at their respective universities.
"With this book, Anderson and Cohen have given a true gift to educational practitioners
and scholars.” Tina Trujillo, University of California, Berkeley
