Kory Olson

Professor Kory Olson is Associate Professor of French in the Language and Culture Studies Program at Stockton University. He received his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University in 2006. His research focuses on urbanism of nineteenth and twentieth century France along with the history of cartography, travel guides, and geographic education. His recent book, The Cartographic Capital: Mapping Third-Republic Paris (Liverpool 2018) focuses on the shifting ideas and concepts of urban space as technological innovations changed how Parisians used and understood their city. His forthcoming entry “Military Mapping by France” will appear in the University of Chicago’s History of Cartography Project Volume 5: Cartography in the Nineteenth Century and explores the army’s surveying and presentation of the nation’s terrain.
