Call for Papers
Garden and Landscape Symposium at Dumbarton Oaks, May 3-4, 2019
Soon after H-HistGeog launched at H-Net in January 2002 its indefatigable editor Sam Otterstrom was moderating discussions of "GIS and segregation," “public and private space in places past,” and new queries for texts and resources. The resulting threads illustrated the kind of helpful collaboration and information-sharing that have defined who we are at H-Net.
