Historical Geography Research Group
The Historical Geography Research Group (HGRG) is one of the largest research groups of the RGS-IBG, and seeks to to initiate and foster research in the field of Historical Geography.
It does so by:
- Promoting discussion by means of meetings and conferences
- Furthering co-operation between cognate disciplines and organisations
- Organising publication of monographs, collected papers and discussion materials
The group publishes three issues of its newsletter every year updating members on activities. It also publishes the Research Paper Series of monographs, providing scholars with an outlet for extended essays of an interpretative or conceptual nature that make a substantive contribution to some aspect of the subject; critical reviews of the literature on a major problem; and commentaries on relevant sources. One or two numbers are produced annually. A list of publications is available from the HGRG Honorary Secretary.
