The Book Haven, a blog by our colleague Cynthia Haven, reviewed the lecture in Green Library on November 12 by independent scholar Chet Van Duzer, who discussed his latest book, Seeing the World Anew: The Radical Vision of Martin Waldseemüller’s 1507 & 1516 World Maps(Library of Congress and Levenger Press, 2012).  The 1507 publication was the first map to use the name “America.”
