Prof. Richard Campanella, a geographer with the Tulane School of Architecture, is the author of nine books and over a hundred articles on the urban geography of New Orleans and related topics. His research, which integrates mapping and spatial analyses with architecture, social science, and the humanities, has been praised in the New York Review of Books, Journal of Southern History, Urban History, Places, Louisiana History, Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association, and Bloomsbury Review. The only two-time winner of the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities Book of the Year Award, Campanella has also received the Louisiana Literary Award, the Williams Prize for Louisiana History, the Mortar Board Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Monroe Fellowship, the Hannah Arendt Prize for Scholarship in the Public Interest, and the Tulane University Honors Professor of the Year. In 2016, the Government of France named Campanella as Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Palmes Académiques (Knight of the Order of the Academic Palms).
