Practising Historical Geography and Spaces for, and of Historical Geography

Here are two great events taking place in historical geography – both of interest to researchers and postgrads. I attended one of these events about 5 years ago at UCL and it was excellent. An opportunity to meet other geographers from across the country, but also discuss your own research plans. Dates for the diary: 5th and 6th November 2008.
