For over 40 years the Historical Geography Research Group (HGRG) has published a research series focusing on extended essays of an interpretive or conceptual nature that make a substantive contribution to some aspect of historical geography, critical reviews of the literature on a major problem, and commentaries on relevant sources.
The full series, including previous volumes dating back to 1979, is open access and freely available to download via the HGRG website.
The latest volume in the series, Environments, Spaces, Knowledges: New and Emerging Research in Historical Geography, has now been published and is available to download.
This volume, as a collection of short essays from postgraduate students, provided doctoral researchers with the opportunity to publish their in-progress work, and is an opportunity to reflect on the contribution made by doctoral study to the subdiscipline. The publication grew out of postgraduate conference sessions, which are organised annually by the Group’s postgraduate representatives, and they reflect a long-standing contribution to the Society’s Annual International Conference programme. Along with the Practising Historical Geography workshop, they demonstrate the Group’s longstanding commitment to postgraduate and early-career training.
Many thanks to the editors, contributors and especially to HGRG’s outgoing Research Series Editor, Hilary Bishop, for all their hard work in getting the volume published.
