New feature for Journal of Historical Geography
Historical Geography at Large is a new section of the journal devoted to reviews and commentaries on work beyond the traditional confines of the academy. The insights of historical geographers are being put to work in a wide variety of public arenas, including exhibitions, magazines, television and the digital media.
