The next annual seminar commemorating the historian, Gerald Aylmer, focuses on the theme ‘Locating the Past’.
The seminar will explore the changing interface between history and geography, asking scholars from a range of related disciplines and sub-disciplines to identify how their field of expertise is being transformed by new approaches and technologies. The seminar is jointly sponsored by the Royal Historical Society, the Institute of Historical Research and The National Archives. It will take place on Wednesday 29 February starting at 9:30am in the Chancellors Hall, Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, London http://www.history.ac.uk/contact
The programme has three panel sessions with short presentations and open discussion. The first session will review some of the sources available when considering using geographic information systems; speakers on the second panel will consider relevant research questions and applications used, and the third session will look at working with commercial partners to develop and/or use new technologies to create information about places and to consider questions of public management and impact.
The programme ends with a keynote speech by Professor Tim Hitchcock.
