Call for Submissions

We are looking for papers that address geographical biographies of people and events through the history of geography. Papers deal with particular scientists or ordinary people and relate to events and specific moments in time and space. However, any other project related to the history of geography will be welcome.


This session discusses "geographical voices" from a historical perspective. Papers in this session include personal accounts of scientists and ordinary people and institutional and disciplinary views and how these positions are expressed.
