Research Series

The Historical Geography Research Series is produced by the Historical Geography Research Group of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers). The Research Series is designed to provide scholars with an outlet for extended essays of an interpretive 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. Contributions to the series are always welcome. In addition to single or jointly-authored monographs, the Series welcomes themed conference papers or papers grouped around a topic of research relevant to the broad interests of the group. Intending contributors should, in the first instance, send an outline of their proposed paper to the Series Editor.

The order form includes details of discounts for HGRG members.
