Hazel Hahn, associate professor of history, signed a contract with Palgrave MacMillan to publish her book on culture and consumption in 19th century Paris. She also published an article, “Puff Marries Advertising: Commercialization of Culture in Jean-Jacques Grandville’s Un Autre Monde (1844)” in Visions of the Industrial Age: Image and Imagery in Nineteenth-Century European Culture (Ashgate, U.K., 2008). Hahn conducted research in Vietnam and Cambodia for six months during her sabbatical. She focused on municipal politics and urban planning in Saigon, Hanoi and Phnom Penh from 1880 to 1945, and also on the development of tourism in French Indochina.
