Committee for Historical Geography
The Committee for Historical Geography was established in 1967 at the Institute of History of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences during a period of relative liberation in political and public life in Czechoslovakia. At the time, historical geographers were primarily interested in research based on thorough analysis of written and cartographic sources while also considering relevant findings in a range of other disciplines, such as archaeology and toponymy. One year later, in 1968, the periodical Historická geografie [Historical Geography] was founded to serve as a platform for the publication of findings from historical-geographic and historical-cartographic research.
The Committee for Historical Geography follows the theories and methodologies applied in Czech historical geography in the European and global contexts as well as basic historical-geographic and historical-cartographic research, primarily focusing on transformations in the Czech and Central European landscape in international (namely Central European) contexts. It monitors and initiates interdisciplinary collaboration on basic and applied research between experts on these topics. It is also active in the organization of both foreign and domestic historical-geographic conferences and related events.
