This year's Social Science History Association conference will be held at

The SSHA is the leading interdisciplinary association for historical research in the U.S. We encourage the participation of graduate students and recent Ph.D.s, as well as more established scholars, from a wide range of disciplines and departments.
The SSHA's historical geography network covers all aspects of research into
historical geography. Recent areas of interest include:
The social and cultural geography of national and ethnic identities;
urban and rural geographies;
historical applications of GIS for visualization and spatial analysis
methods for digital historical geography--gazetteers, interoperability solutions, remote sensing, etc.
historical geographies of labor migration and industrial development

At the meeting in Baltimore, we would like to encourage the submission of papers and panels on aspects of urban history, race and residence, historical geography in the classroom, and geostatistics, as well as any and all other topics connected to historical geography in its many varieties.
For the conference we would welcome complete sessions or individual papers
on any aspect of historical geography. Sessions typically include three or
four research papers or roundtable participants, a chair, and one or two
discussants. Submission of sessions or papers can be done online however we
would welcome the chance to discuss proposals before they are submitted.
