Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewpeer-review

Abstract

Moving beyond the intellectual and epistemological frameworks of their own era is certainly essential if they are to engage with geography’s various pasts at different times and in different places. By adopting diverse interpretative strategies to explore a range of graphic and morphological sources, studies of medieval geographical knowledge offer an important methodological and historiographic challenge to the predominantly modern, western focus of much work in the history of geography. The national setting is also prominent in recent work examining how the development of geography as a science in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was significantly shaped through moments and practices of warfare.
