This session provides a forum for historical geographers engaged in presenting their research on the World Wide Web. Technological changes over the past decade have increasingly facilitated the publication and integration of interactive Web maps, text, photographs, audio, and video files on the WWW. University presses are experimenting with such digital alternatives to the academic monograph. The Journal of Historical Geography now publishes Web maps in its articles. And a growing number of historical geographers is experimenting with serving interactive projects through Web browsers. The presenters will discuss not only substantive aspects of their particular projects but also broader epistemological, methodological, technical, institutional, funding, career, service, access, and pedagogical issues.
