Steven Seegel is Associate Professor of History at the University of Northern Colorado, in the United States. He is the author of books and articles on the history of modern East European geography, geopolitics, and critical cartography, including Mapping Europe’s Borderlands: Russian Cartography in the Age of Empire (University of Chicago Press, 2012), and Ukraine under Western Eyes (Harvard University Press, 2011). He is working on a couple of new book projects: a transnational microhistory of the lives and deaths of six geographers across East Central Europe from the 1870s to the 1950s, and a world history of East European civil aviation and international law from World War I to the present.
