The Historical Geography Network invites you to take part in the 36th annual meeting of the SSHA, November 17-20, 2011 in Boston, Massachusetts.
We are seeking complete panels as well as individual papers.
The Historical Geography Network has an active membership of scholars who utilize geographic information systems (GIS) to tackle a wide range of historical problems. We encourage papers and panels that use GIS as a methodological tool to ask new historical questions as well as to revisit old ones.
A number of interesting panel themes were suggested during a lively discussion at the annual general meeting in Chicago. Examples include but are not limited to:
- Follow the children: Generational migration
- Ethnic Residential Patterns
- Census Related Topics
- Journeys to Work and Labour Migration
- Prosopographic Databases and GIS
- GIS for World History
- Geographies of Poverty and Economic Distress
- Environmental Geographies
- Urban Networks
- Spatial Censuses
- Economic Diffusion and Westward Expansion
The deadline for papers and/or panel submissions is February 15, 2011.
The SSHA requests that submissions be made by means of its web conference management system. Paper title, brief abstract, and contact information should be submitted to: http://conference.ssha.org Panel proposals should include an organizer, discussant, and at least 3 paper presenters.
We look forward to seeing you in Boston!
