Hanna and Student Publish Historical Markers Study

Stephen Hanna, chair and professor of Geography, and Fariss Hodder ’14 co-wrote an article based on a Fredericksburg historical markers study completed while Hodder was a student. The article, “Reading the signs: using a qualitative Geographic Information System to examine the commemoration of slavery and emancipation on historical markers in Fredericksburg, Virginia” is now available in “cultural geographies,” an international journal of peer-reviewed scholarly research.

Hanna and Hodder also co-authored a chapter for “Social Memory and Heritage Tourism Methodologies,” a methodology book that will be published by Routledge in February 2015.
